Andrew Gardiner commented: “I’m absolutely delighted to have my entry chosen as the winning image. Being a Wellingborough resident, I’m extremely proud of the town and the beautiful scenery it offers to complement the thriving local community. There are not many places where you can capture the town’s skyline and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity, so I’m glad it has been well received!”
Two runners-up have also been announced, with Desmond Watson and Rovana Feteanu picking up second and third place respectively. Both will receive a cheque for £250. Mr Watson’s entry was an urban image of Wellingborough town centre, while Ms Feteanu’s entry was of the River Nene and Whitworth Brothers Flour Mill.

Paul Boatman, strategic project director at Bovis Homes, responsible for Stanton Cross, said: “We were taken aback by the entries which all brilliantly encapsulated Wellingborough in their own unique way. Wellingborough is a vibrant and lively town with a strong sense of community, and we felt the selected entries captured its spirit and sense of local pride. We would like to say thank you to everyone who submitted an entry. The competition has demonstrated the very best that the town has to offer in terms of both photography talent and scenery.”
