SB Connect Winter 2016

Great Shots!

The recent Our Scottish Borders photography competition had a fantastic response, with more than 140 images submitted.

The competition was split into three categories: under 16, adult and professional photographers. The images submitted show many aspects of life in the Scottish Borders and the surrounding countryside, which made the judging process a difficult one!

The winning and runner-up images were showcased in an exhibition at the Heart of Hawick. They are also available to download from where free postcards can also be ordered.


The winners are:

  • Under 16 – Beth Thomson ‘Roxburgh bridge in winter’ and Melissa Hunter ‘Smailholm tower silhouette’
  • Professional – Angus Blackburn ‘Sheep and neeps and ‘Shorteared owl’
  • Adult – Alison MacGregor ‘Scots pines at Smailholm’ and Robin Chapman ‘Abbotsford House’.
