Strong Island Photo of The Year Competition Week 7...

Strong Island Photo of The Year Competition Week 7 Winner and Runners Up

Think I might stick with Thursdays…time to announce last week’s (week 7) weekly winner. We had a great mix of submissions with some B&W in there plus some catching life out and about Southsea now the summer is lurking around the corner. To submit photos yourself via Instagram & Twitter for the Strong Island Photo of the Year Competition use the hashtag #SIPhotoComp2015 and you can always email photos in too to contact@strong-island.co.uk.

A really tough choice it came down to a great photo of Southsea Common by Sam Carter and a photo of the Solent by Tony Benham…in the end our 7th weekly winning photo (by a whisker) is by photographer Tony Benham.

This weekly winner will now be entered into the finals of the competition which will happen in December where everyone can vote for their favourite weekly winning photos. This image will now become our Strong Island Facebook header image for the next 7(ish) days until next week’s winner.

Below are some of the runners up for this week. A huge thank you to everyone who submitted! Don’t worry if your photo didn’t win or make the shortlist, you can enter photos every week until the finals in December. You can now submit photos for this week’s weekly winner selection which will be chosen and shown next week. To enter simply email, Tweet or Instagram your photo that was taken in, on or around Portsmouth.
