The top ten winners were local residents Kyla Williams, Nina Murray, Jack Derbisz, Jeremy Smith, Bogusalawa Petit, Hannah Millet, Steven Farmer, Toni Michelle Scammell, Kate-Jane Mack and Zoe Rebecca. (please check with Gerogie, there have been some changes).
In addition, the top 20 photographs documenting Houlton’s natural world, which include everything from its feathered friends to spectacular sunsets, will feature in an outdoor photography exhibition at Houlton later this year.
Galina Bardarska fomUrban&Civic at Houlton, said: “We were blown away by the stunning shots captured by our talented locals throughout lockdown. We were delighted to see so many pick up their cameras and capture the vibrant and diverse wildlife on their daily walks – there’s so much to see in and around Houlton, whether you’re out for a stroll or exploring our many cycleways and nature trails.
