The LLAMFF - UKC - LIVING ART Photo competition
The LLAMFF - UKC - LIVING ART Photo Competition, run in February on UKC, was a great success. There were over 240 superb photos entered from UKC Users with the winners being displayed during the LLAMFF on the weekend of 6 and 7 March. As a bonus, Living Art agreed to manage moving the images to ShAFF, on the next weekend giving extra exposure for these great photographs.
Below are the winning photos. The selection was made initially on UKC User votes with the final winners chosen by Ray Wood and Sue Peyton. Thanks to all who took part. We can't show all the entries since they have now been merged back into the respective UKC Galleries.
