Your votes have been cast and counted, and we are now in a position to announce the winner of our 2020 Slow Moments competition. Usually, we would do this in person, as part of a special exhibition at a local photographic gallery. As that isn’t possible this year, we’ve put together a virtual gallery, which showcases a selection of excellent entries received over the course of the competition.
Among the Slow Moments featured, you will find the winners of each of the monthly heats, who were in contention for one fabulous prize: an Inntravel walking holiday in Slovenia’s Enchanted Valley.
So which monthly champion did you choose as your overall winner? We invite you to step inside the gallery, where all will be revealed…
Slow Moments 2020 Gallery
For the best viewing experience, select 'enter exhibition' rather than ‘start guided tour’.
We can also reveal the three highest-scored entries below:
3rd place – Allan Harris
'Having a chat in a rehearsal break'
Allan's entry – captured during the York 2012 Mystery Plays – was popular with many of you, gaining 23% of the vote.
2nd place – Louise Waldron
'Reflections of Lucca'
The beautiful buildings of Lucca's Piazza Anfiteatro inspired Louise to take this image – and 27% of you to vote for it as your favourite.
1st place – Rose Howie
With a staggering 39% of the vote, Rose Howie's image of the Solway coast was your clear winner, and our top Slow Moment of 2020. Rose's prize is an Inntravel walking holiday to Slovenia, where we hope she will be able to enjoy many more Slow Moments. Many congratulations, Rose!
