Tremendous work as competition 2018 reaches voting stage

There has been some tremendous work entered to the competition and a range of views, themes, and inspirational pictures that truly capture the spirit of Pevensey Bay.

We will be seeing an exhibition of some of this work, no doubt, at some point in a community setting, and since a number of people have suggested that some of the pieces of work should go forward to become postcards and greetings cards in the new EtsyBay online shop, we will look at these possibilities.

The twenty finalists in the competition have now been selected to go forward in the competition to the voting stage by the public,.

We are setting the Polldaddy software on our new Pevensey Bay Journal web platform, smart phone ready, which is a new feature based magazine style profile on the web to support our newspaper.

All the images will feature in three sizes for people voting, to see each piece of work in detail in all the glory that they deserve, as people cast their votes.

We are checking names and titles of pieces and hope to launch the voting stage of the competition on Thursday 14 June at 7:30pm.

The voting will be open for two weeks from that date and time.

Thank you so much to everyone that has entered this local photography competition, the work is just tremendous, there is no other word to utilise.

When some of the work has come in, the quality, on a number of occasions, has literally taken our breath away.

We hope that the first placed photograph, second and third placed photographs, in this competition will go on to greater things.

The winning entry will feature in the next edition of the Pevensey Bay Journal, (edition 19) soon to be available in local newsagents.

Well done everyone, what a wonderful selection of images that have truly captured the spirit of Pevensey Bay in all the quirky sunlit glory that we to offer residents and visitors.

If the spectacular particularity of the beach scene at Pevensey Bay was not known to people, then they are about to see an advert for what we have to offer to residents and visitors, given a little more promotion and visibility..

Pevensey Bay is the hidden jewel in the crown of Sussex.

These images and the hugely talented base of artist photographers that we have in our midst, has done us proud.

People get ready to vote. Who will win? We have no idea.

This competition appears to have electrified the local audience to a certain extent, and the people will decide.

The announcement of who has won, with a live running vote list over the top five pieces of work each day of the voting stage, will be posted to Bay Life, as we have done in previous years, whilst the two week voting stage takes place.

In a previous competition, with close to 500 votes, the competition went right to the wire and the extraordinary image by Gary Sadler won the competition the last two hours of voting, a very well deserved winner indeed,

This time, the quality threshold is simply set so high.

The winning piece of work is likely to see more interest in the promotion of the work. There have also been requests for the work by Gary Sadler, the previous winner, to be promoted as one of the ‘representative images of the locality”, on postcards and greetings cards in the EtsyBay online shop which is also to be considered.

Again, thank you so much to everyone that has entered this local photography competition

We will post to Bay Life this Thursday (14 June) to indicate that voting has started.
