Competition winners revealed!

First prize went to this stunning entry by Terry Wall – Wildebeest – Mara River taken on a two week safari in Kenya from the Land Rover after handbrake turn by the driver!

The judges had a difficult time choosing between so many amazing photos.  We received so many beautiful and inspiring images. 

Terry’s image will be one of thirteen winning images to feature in Cobalt’s 2023 calendar, as well as in an exhibition in September here at Cobalt’s headquarters Linton House, Cheltenham.  

Each winning entrant will receive a framed print of their work, as well as other amazing prizes.

Do come along to see the exhibition and enjoy a coffee and delicious cake on Saturday 8 October at 10.00am. 

All proceeds go towards Cobalt’s teenage and young adult cancer nurse.


Second prize – Huw Jones  – Lunch is delivered. A stunning Kingfisher. One of 8000 images so far! One nest he watched had three broods this year, which meant a very busy fishing time for the father kingfisher as he feeds the female while she sits on the eggs and then the female plus babies after that.

Third prize went to Linda Kirkhope with her beautiful Inner Spiral. Linda’s photo of the Tulip Stairs was taken at Queens House Greenwich with a compact camera. Architect Inigo Jones  created the self-supporting staircase allowing an unobstructed view through the centre. It was the first cantilevered spiral geometric staircase in the UK.

Kitty Jacobs is our winner of the under 16 category with The Light Creeps In.  She took this photo in Portugal whilst sea kayaking. She visited a cave and loved the way a beam of light came into it. She wanted to frame the light with the kayaks because it felt like a very special place as you could only get there by sea and it was so beautiful.
