The Adult winning film ‘Scared Witless’ was a real cracker submitted by Joe Dawson. The jury loved it. It was well thought out with beginning, middle and end and very funny. Joe was presented with a cheque and a Phil Haynes Award.

Fleur Ash was the junior winner with Reverse Film, a really clever film showing everything backwards. It was endlessly fascination watching life backwards, particularly eating and drinking. Eating a pizza backwards was extremely clever as they ended up with a whole pizza! Fleur also was awarded a cheque.

Poppies submitted by Judy Newbury. This photograph had tremendous impact and also contained excellent subject matter, had great textural qualities and use of natural lighting. All in all a worthy winner.
