The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust is delighted to announce the three winners of the competition to design its new notecards. Launched in March, the competition saw a wide variety of entries from both professional and amateur British artists and photographers. The top 10 entries were selected by Peter Thompson, GWCT advisor and keen photographer, and the finalists work was put on the GWCT website where hundreds of people took part in the vote for the winners.
The three winners were Jason Clamp from Brechin, Scotland
Emily Down from Totnes, Devon
and Kathy Moores.
Commenting on the judging, Peter Thompson said; “The standard of entries for the paintings and photographs was extremely high, and there were dozens to choose from. It was only after much deliberation that I selected the 10 finalists. My congratulations to the winners in what was a very close competition.”
The winning images will be available as a set of limited edition notecards from the GWCT online shop soon.
