Cirencester Town Council are delighted to announce the winners of the 2018 Cirencester Fleece Fayre Photography Competition. The competition was launched to encourage the community to capture images of the second annual Fleece Fayre, held in Cirencester Market Place on Monday 7th May. The competition was split in to two categories for those over and under 18, the winners were voted for by members of the public.
Entrants were challenged to capture community spirit in action as well as the variety of events, music, entertainment and market that took place on the day. The winner and runner up from each group will have their photograph professionally printed and framed; both winners and runners up will also receive a certificate. Additionally, the top 10 public voted photographs will be printed and exhibited in the Church of St. John the Baptist, Cirencester for the next week. All photographs will also be used to create an archive of the event and may be used for publicity and promotion of future events, for which the photographer will receive credit.
