Christmas Photography Competition 2020 – The Results!

Christmas is a special time of year, and while the 2020 festive season will be different from what we’re used to; we can still spread joy to others. We recently asked you to send us your Christmas photographs as part of our final competition of the year. We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who entered! We received a large volume of entries, and selecting the winners (as always!) was a real challenge.

Looking through your photos certainly made us smile, and helped us to get into the Christmas spirit! We hope you enjoy them just as much as we did.

We’ll have plenty more competitions in 2021, so keep an eye on our weekly newsletters for more details. But, without further ado, here are the winning entries…
