The second annual Laganscape photography competition again “proved difficult to judge” with so many submitted entries “being of the highest calibre”.

The themes of, ‘the natural world and ‘heritage & art’ allowed budding photographers unlimited scope for exploring Lagan Valley Regional Park during its changing seasons.

Ricky McQuillan local photographer and judge of the competition, said: “The quality of this year’s images was excellent and choosing the winners was a difficult task. The subjects chosen showed a real understanding of the Regional Park’s special qualities.”

The exhibition is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and will eventually be on show at other locations throughout the Lagan Valley.
