Wiltshire photographer wins favourite outdoor image
British outdoor brand Hi-Tec has announced that Ken Evans from Chippenham, Wiltshire, has won the latest award for its ongoing ‘Inspire Me’ photography competition.
The contest, which launched in April, aims to find the nation’s favourite outdoor, walking or hiking image. The judges chose Ken’s photo entitled 'Snow Covered Remains' as the winner of the January category, due to its significance following the weather which has swept across the country and the manner in which the photo highlights the beauty which can come from it..
Each month a Hi-Tec judging panel will choose their favourite photograph - with the lucky winner receiving a top of the range pair of Hi-Tec walking boots. This April, all 12 winning entries will go head to head in a bid to find the most inspiring picture of the year – with the winner heading off on a family walking trip worth over £1000.
Upon winning the January award, Ken said: “I loved the contrast between the smooth undulating, snow covered, ground and the harshness of the brickwork, which in turn is juxtaposed nicely to the sky. It was a particularly cold day, but, like most things in life, if you want to get good results you have put some effort in.
“I'm absolutely delighted and honoured that my image has been chosen as January’s winning image. Thank you Hi-Tec!”
Helen Durant, Marketing Manager for Hi-Tec, said of the competition, “Outdoor lovers across British Isles have sent many various inspiring photos that really display quite clearly what a beautiful country we live in! Hi-Tec is a proud British Outdoor and Sports brand with a heritage in producing some of the best walking boots for the entire family – and we’re encouraging people to take full advantage of the country’s brilliant walking routes by sending in their favourite images.”
To enter the competition, entrants just need to visitwww.hi-tec.com/uk to upload their image, and there is no limit to the number of entries that can be submitted. All entries will appear on the Hi-Tec website and Facebook page.
