Winners of the first Friends of the Byes photography competition have been announced.
Herald photographer Alex Walton deliberated over 100 entries and narrowed it down to the final three in two age categories for under and over 17s.
Alex said: “It was a very good standard across the board and it was hard to judge - technically and emotionally.”
Participants met on Tuesday afternoon for a photograph, where they found out the results.
In the under 17 category, William Pullman won first place and a cheque for £25, Ben Hooper and Jack Garrick came in second and third and also received prizes of £15 and £10 respectively.
