The Friends of Ottery Library (FOOL) launched the contest to encourage more teenagers to use the town’s new facility by asking them to snap photos on a mobile phone.

Participants could take three pictures which had to be based on the theme of ‘who needs words?’.

Following a difficult deliberation, judges announced Frankie Roberts as the winner and awarded prizes to Alexandra Fearn-Smith, Lily Pendray, Lily Allen-Smith and Liberty Shaw.

Now visitors to the library can now chose their winner from a display of 50 of the best photographs.

Lily Allen Smith was awarded fourth place for her picture.
