Spring at Devil's Point by Derek Tait

Derick Tait’s winning photo of Spring at Devil's Point

When we launched our spring photo competition with our partner, Kodak, you literally leapt at the opportunity.

With several hundred entries of the highest quality – including many from very talented youngsters – we narrowed it down to 12 finalists, and asked for your help in choosing our winners.

More than 1,000 readers had their say, and Derek Tait, from Plymouth, ended up taking the top honours for his evocative and quintessentially English picture of Spring at Devil’s Point, polling almost half the total votes cast. He wins Kodak’s 12 megapixel EasyShare Max digital camera, worth £299.99.

Munchin' by Bex Saunders

Bex Saunders runner-up photo of caterpillars on a leaf

A previous winner in our winter competition, Bex Saunders, from Romsey in Hampshire, was a worthy runner-up; her Munchin’ picture of caterpillars on a leaf got just under a quarter of your votes and won her the 10-inch Kodak Pulse digital photo frame, worth £169.99.

Well done to both of them and to all our entrants and finalists. Special mentions go to seven-year old Rachel Skirton, whose lovely crocuses picture made our final, beating her mum, and also to Neil Hedge, whose stunning picture of a bee in flight received most comments on our Facebook gallery.
