Judging Criteria

The main criterion is the content of the picture. It must be interesting.  It must be in focus.

We are looking for pictures that show what it is like to live in Burniston & Cloughton. They can be taken at a party, or at community group doing something together, or it can show a typical everyday activity like going to the shop or one of the lovely pubs, or anything else you think represents living in our villages.   A place of historic interest, a place of beauty or something quirky.

The overall winner of the ‘The People’s Choice Award will be the photograph which receives the most votes on the day from those who come to the Queens Jubilee Festival at the Village Hall.

Meet the Judges

  • Clive Welburn

I have had brain tumours and after my last operation, 5-6 years ago I got bored and thought I would try photography and I got hooked.

I like to photograph everything, but I specialise in event photography and motor sport photography.

  • Sally Michilitus

Born and brought up in the local countryside, I have a passion for the outdoors and am at my happiest when out and about with just my camera for company! I live in the beautiful village of Ravenscar with my Husband, two teenage children and our two dogs. I work in Community Rail on the beautiful Esk Valley Railway Line and love to spend any free time I have out walking with my camera.
