PHOTO-TASTIC: Trio named as winners in Harrow photography competition

 Published on: 18th October 2023   |   By: Panayiota Demosthenous   |   Category: Uncategorized

Three photographers have been recognised as part of the Harrow Photographer of the Year competition, which organisers hope will become an annual celebration of life in the borough.

A panel of judges, including representatives from Westminster University, Harrow Open Studios and Headstone Manor & Museum, assessed the entrants and chose the three winners.

For the Young Photographer of the Year category, the panel chose Ashvin Bhatiya’s The Street, which shows an enchanting view of Rayners Lane by night.

The other two categories were the People’s Choice, won by Bill Chalmers with his stunning sunset over Newton Park, and First Choice, won by Peter Keeble’s atmospheric shot of Wealdstone.

The competition is organised by the charity Harrow Giving as a way to start conversations with the community about different perspectives of the borough, and celebrate the local area through the eyes of the people who live and work there.

Deven Pillay, one of the trustees of the charity and a member of the judging panel, said: “This competition really shows the vibrancy of the place that is Harrow. Together, the entries give a fascinating portrait of our borough.”

Next year’s competition will reopen to the public in June. Find out more at
