Calendar Winner Announced for March

The March winner of the Wonders of Wrexham 2018 Calendar photography competition has been announced and this month's accolade goes to amateur photographer Paul Wynn for his stunning photograph of Erddig Gardens.

Judges were once again very impressed with the quality of entries and for the second month in a row a tie breaker had to take place with three photographs going head to head.

Paul's beautiful photograph finally declared the winner with Paul being over the moon at the decision.

Paul said:

"I am absolutely thrilled that my photograph of Erddig Gardens has won the March Calendar Competition. I visit Erddig many times throughout the year and along with other amateur photographers, I have taken many photographs of the beautiful gardens and the surrounding woodland within the Erddig area. I feel very humbled that my photograph has been chosen for the Calendar and I would encourage other photographers to enter the competition during the remaining months of the year."

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 February with the winner being announced early march.

The winning photographs will all be features 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 March 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
