Thank you for sending so many photos in our 2008 Photography Competition – we received thousands.
The judges have deliberated, discussed, cogitated, argued and, eventually, reached a consensus.
Here are the winning shots in each of the six categories. You can see nearly 80 of the photos that impressed the judges in this gallery.
If yours isn’t among them, don’t be too disappointed, the standard of entries was higher this year than ever before. “Just stunning,” said FW group picture editor Jodie Deakin.
We’ll be running the competition again next year, with new categories and even better prizes – look out for details in 2009.
Livestock winner Ben Kerley, Swavesey, Cambridgeshire
Arable winner Roger Tebbutt, Glyn, Anglesey
General farm scenes winner Julie Hazleton, Country Antrim
Children Tracey Havard, Brecon
Humour Janice McAulay, Gartocharn, Dunbartonshire
Nature: Jim Wilson, Duns, Berwickshire
