In the Adult category, Christine Redgate of Haverigg won the top prize with a classically romantic picture of a swan, A Knight On White Satin, which was taken at Hodbarrow Nature Reserve.

In the Junior category Holly McGrady of Whitehaven won with her quirky image of a seabird, Where’s all the snow gone? which was taken at Dalton–in–Furness.
