3rd prize in each age group is a £50 photographic voucher donated by London Camera Exchange.

The Richard Pearse Memorial Prize of £100, donated by Stroud News & Journal, is an additional special award to the entrant submitting the photograph which, in the opinion of the judging panel, would most have been enjoyed by the founder of the competition, Richard Pearse 1953 – 2017.

All finalists will be invited to the Awards Ceremony to be held on the evening of Wednesday 27th September 2017 and the prizes will be presented by Sabet Choudhury from BBC Television’s “Points West” and “Inside Out”.
