The Seaton Valley Photography Competition 2022 attracted over 200 entries across the five categories of Landscape, Wildlife, Village Life, Under 18 and Under 10. The competition was introduced in 2016 for residents to share photographs that represent where they live.
The winners were chosen by a panel of judges comprising of councillors from the three Seaton Valley Wards.

Eva Coulson said: “The wildlife images were amazing and I admire the patience of the photographers waiting to get the right image.” Cllr.
