Our judges are now choosing the winners of the Cheshire Life photography competition in association with Wilkinson Cameras

All the entries are in and our judges are now carefully considering who should win the prizes in our annual photography competition.

Readers have been out and about across the county since the competition was launched in March and once again the standard has been phenomenal.

The judging panel is led by David Pilkington from competition sponsors Wilkinsons Cameras, Cheshire Life picture editor John Cocks and editor Louise Allen- Taylor. She said: Every year we see better and better pictures being taken and added to our website. That makes it even more of a joy for us to look through the pictures but it also makes it much more difficult to choose the winners.

The top three including the winner of our new Young Photographer of the Year category for under 16-year-olds will receive terrific camera equipment supplied by Wilkinsons.

Top prize is a Nikon D5100 and AF-S 18-55 VR worth 630, and the runner-up will receive a Nikon Coolpix P7100 worth 400. Our young photographer of the year will win a Nikon Coolpix AW100 worth 250.

The winners will be revealed in Novembers Cheshire Life. To order your copy now and save 1, go to and enter the discount code CC21.
