Top Shot for Debbie

The April winner of the Wonders of Wrexham 2018 Calendar photography competition has been announced and this month the top spot goes to amateur photographer Debbie Eccles for her beautiful photograph of Acton Park Lake.

Judges were once again very impressed with the quality of entries but Debbie proved to be an outright winner this month.

Debbie said:

"The park is beautiful at this time of year and there are plenty of spots to photograph. I'm just glad the judges liked my entry and I am over the moon to have won."

The Wonders of Wrexham 2018 Calendar Competition was launched at the beginning of November following the news that North Wales is ranked fourth in the world of regions to visit. Staff at the time thought it only right that Wrexham celebrated its place in the world with a snapshot record of Wrexham throughout the year.

The aim of the competition is to find the photograph taken by an amateur photographer which captures the essence of the month of entry. Entries are now invited for May with the winner being announced early march.

The winning photographs will all be featured in a Wonders of Wrexham 2018 calendar.

There's no prize except all 12 winners will receive copies of the Wonders of Wrexham 2018 calendar when it is produced in November 2017 with their photo and name attributed.

All profits from the sale of the calendar will be donated to the Mayor's chosen charities.

Entries can be of anywhere in the County Borough taken during the month of May and terms and conditions apply.

Photos should be submitted via email, full resolution preferred, to calendar@wrexham.gov.uk. Further information and terms and conditions are available on the Council's website at www.wrexham.gov.uk
