Wild: Upton Country Park Open 2021 - THE RESULTS
The Launch Party was very well attended, under the circumstances. But sadly Helen Talbot our selector was unable to be there in person due to a positive covid test. The speech she had prepared was read out on her behalf. In it she noted that all submissions had been anonymous, and she congratulated everyone on the quality and the quantity of works submitted.
Helen had £300 to award at her discretion.
Congratulations went to the six joint winners who each won £50:
Steph Jones - Dragon Fly
Valerie Willets - Enigma 1
