We were thrilled to receive nearly 60 entries into our photographic competition to find images for our 2020 calendar. The theme was “Celebrating Cornwall’s Heritage” and the Judges were spoilt for choice, making their job extremely difficult to whittle the entries down to the final 13.
Our thanks to Col Edward Bolitho (CHT President), Emma Griffin (Griffin Photography) and our Trustees for taking the time to study each entry and choose the winners, to ensure a fair decision the entries were judged anonymously. Thanks must also go to everyone who took the time to submit an image or images, all of the photographs were of a very high standard and we are grateful for the time and effort they undoubtedly put in to their entries.
