So, many congratulations to all the winning and highly commended entrants, and indeed many thanks to all who took the time and effort to enter the competition this year. Many thanks are also due to the very hard working team of judges, who gave up their time on a wild, wintry evening to spend hours poring over the almost two hundred entries: Tom McDonnell, Marina McMullan, Ann Henderson and Mary O'Driscoll.

The winning and highly commended entries will be exhibited on the island in the coming weeks. Congatulations!
