A few words from the judge:
Everyone should be very proud of their work, I was most Impressed with the standard put before me. Choosing was very difficult indeed.
I think the one thing that is consistent is the quality of light that each and every one of you has managed to imbue in the work. I have felt the heat from where I have been standing in the shadows, watched the wind whip through the grass on Bodmin, seen the sunset on the Nile, and heard the sea on both English and Mediterranean coasts. I want to sit on that bench looking out across the sea. You have created the atmosphere perfectly.
Thank-you for the imagined journeys…
