I decided to launch a competition at the end of July to discover the best images of Milton Keynes.
The #MyMK50 competition was set up to celebrate the city’s 50th birthday and Iwas looking forward to seeing our local community through the eyes of its residents.
I posted 50 of my favourite images over 50 days and as the competition got underway, I wasn’t disappointed by the quality or the number of entries.
Adding the 10 finalists to this website, people were asked to vote for their favourite. The image of the tractor ploughing a field in Emberton by J Parker Photography was a standout winner for the voting public.
Runners up were Ophelia Petty, who entered her image of Caldecotte Lake and Liam Hyatt who captured the stunning rainbow over Campbell Park.
I’m incredibly impressed with the high standard of entries and I’m delighted that we have unearthed not only wonderful images but some very talented people to mark our half century! I’m very much looking forward to meeting the winner and presenting him with his prize of a giant sized MK50 commemorative stamp.
