New Forest Dog On The Forest Off The Lead

And the winner is...

A shortlist of seven pictures was judged by members of the public at the New Forest Show to give us a winner in the 2022 Photographic Competition. 

'Maggie springing through the Heather', taken by owner Lucy Prosser won. Although other pictures showed their dogs 'in' spring, Lucy had taken a sideways look at the subject of 'Dogs and Spring' which the judges thought was creative when shortlisting the finalists and accepted despite the seasonal discrepancy. 

All the shortlisted pictures were praised and admired by visitors to the stand, and 176 votes were counted. Lucy and Maggie won with 53 votes. 

Lucy wins a hand drawn picture of Maggie, who sadly will be a memory as Maggie has recently passed away. The artist is Dorset based Sarah Hoar. 

Congratulations and thanks to all who entered - we'll do it again next year!
