Amateur photographers of all ages set high standards in a competition inspired by architecture in the Sid Valley.
The contest, organised by the Rotary Club of the Sid Valley and supported by the Herald, attracted approximately 150 entries.
Chairman of Rotary’s youth committee Malcolm Watkins said: “We were amazed at the high standard.
“We were particularly pleased with the number and high standard of the entries from youngsters in the Sid Valley area – clearly there is a lot of talent.”
Carys Pritchard, seven, of Ladymead, fought off tough competition to claim top prize in the under-11s category with her photo of an ornate lamppost, while Sidmouth College student Jordon Bond and 11-year-old Nathan Jones were crowned joint winners in the 11 – 14-year-olds group.

Judith Stephens’s alternative take on architecture in the Sid Valley clinched victory among the over 65-year-olds.
Entries were displayed for everyone to see in the hall adjacent to the club’s summer fair in Blackmore Gardens and Malcolm said it was lovely to hear many positive comments from people as they viewed them.
