Evie scoops top photo prize with city mill scene

ODIB 2Evie Anagnostou of Manningham has won a free photo competition aimed at capturing the many beautiful and unique images of the Bradford district.

Evie’s dramatic night shot of Lister Mill was among nearly 100 entries submitted online by local people as part of the ‘One Day in Bradford’ competition.

A judging panel made up of representatives from the organisers: Incommunities and local charities – Reading Matters and Schools Link Network – were joined by Adrian Wilson of McFade Photography of Morley to go through the entries and decide on the final winner.

Incommunities Group Chief Executive, Geraldine Howley, presented Evie with a large canvas print of her winning picture and a Tesco Hudl tablet.

Evie said: “My passion is photography and I’m thrilled to win this prize.”

Geraldine Howley, Incommunities Group Chief Executive, said: “I would like to thank everyone who entered the competition.

“We received lots of wonderful images each capturing the diversity and character of the area and its people.”

Steve Short, Director of Incommunities – Open Field, said: “It was an extremely difficult decision but Evie was a really worthy winner showing a keen eye to get an amazing image.”

Amy Mortimer from Reading Matters said “We were delighted to be involved in this competition which encouraged participation from Bradford residents and asked them to engage with their surroundings.

“The winning entry was taken by a young local photographer hoping to make photography her career and we wish her every luck”.

Adrian Wilson of McFade Photography said: “I was delighted to see strong use of angles and shapes, including triangles of steel near the camera being reflected throughout the shot. Well done Evie”

The competition is due to continue with entries welcomed for One Day in Bradford 2015. For further information and to enter go to www.1daybradford.org.uk.
