Sponsored by Jesmond Community Forum and the Friends of Jesmond Library. The theme for the 2023 competition was “A Different Jesmond”, and the winner was David Whinham with his striking image of Jesmond Parish Church under an unusual sky: “Noctilucent clouds over Jesmond”. Runners up were Fiona Clarke with “Exhibition Park Wave” and Nick Lambert with “Misty Morning, Osborne Road”.
Many thanks to the judges, who were Felicity Mendelson, Catherine Walker, Pat Hughes, David Houpt, Marjorie Dodds and Chris Sutcliffe. The judges’ 13 favourite photographs will appear in a 2024 Jesmond Calendar, now in production. When printed, copies will be available in Jesmond Library.
