Young Photographer Logo Rotary Young Photographer 2013 Winners The Rotary Club of Bedworth is proud of its involvement with running competitions to encourage specific talents in the young people in our area. For 2013, we decided to try something new and were delighted to launch the Rotary Young Photographer Competition for the Bedworth area. Entries consisted of a portfolio of three photographs using the theme of "people" accompanied by up to 50 words describing the inspiration behind them.

There were two age categories - Intermediate (11-13) and Senior (14-17) - with the entrant's age as of the 31st August 2013, but we only received entries for the Senior age group. The judging was challenging, but after much deliberation we were able to conclude that Ashley Tonks was the overall winner, with Danielle Kelly in second place and Bethany Townsend coming third. Ashley received a trophy and his photos (included on this page), together with a selection of the other submissions, featured in an exhibition in the gallery area of the Civic Hall, Bedworth, from the 2nd to the 7th December 2013.

Ashley will progress on to the Rotary District competition (covering the West Midlands and Warwickshire) and hopefully from there to the Rotary in Britain and Ireland competition.
