Photographic Competition – ‘Surviving Lockdown’

We are pleased to announce the three winners of our Photographic Competition that we held in May 2021.

There were a total of 31 photos submitted and our three judges, Antonio Gallut of Academia Galway, Laura Serrano of Mar Menor Photographic Association and Paul Shard, a member of ADAPT, had a difficult job deciding the winners. The quality of the photographs was very good and the judges’ brief was to select photos that reflected the subject of the competition.

Below are the three winners, all depicting an aspect of life during ‘lockdown’ due to the CORONA virus.

1st place
1st place

Paul commented on the winning photograph:

“A real sense of lockdown and isolation.”

About 2nd and 3rd positions, Antonio added:

2nd place
2nd place

“The 2nd photograph, depicting a flower full of life and colour in an iron cage, expressed the idea of confinement and the 3rd one of the ‘Thinking Path’ is good because it shows the path which many in San Pedro went along at the end of lockdown.

All 31 photos submitted are on display on the ADAPT website. Take a look, see if you can see why the judges made their decisions.

1st prize was one month of Spanish or English Tuition online donated by Academia Galway.

2nd prize was a Stationary Voucher worth 30€ donated by Mail Pinatar.

3rd prize was a bilingual book ‘Sid’s Adventures in Spain’, donated by Jane Cronin.

We aren’t able to give a definite date for our first ADAPT meeting since lockdown began, but we will advertise it on the website, so keep checking. It shouldn’t be long now. Remember we normally meet on a Saturday morning, once a month. New members are always welcome. You are welcome to participate in ADAPT activities on two occasions without being obliged to become members.
