JUDGING for the 2017 Daily Echo and Castle Cameras Air Festival Photographic competition has taken place.

The brief for the competition was Aviation for the Adult entries and the spirit and atmosphere of the festival for the Junior entries.

Today we are printing the top five entries for the adult competition and the top three for the 16-and-under category.

The top adult photographer will win £300 worth of Castle Cameras vouchers and in the junior category the winner will receive £100 in Castle Cameras Vouchers.

Judging the competition was Racheal Tattum, partner at Castle Cameras. She said: “It was lovely to see the Air Festival competition entries and how the competition was interpreted. The Red Arrows were as usual very popular, along with wing walkers and the night air shots.

“It was also interesting to see the range of different angles which the planes can be photographed and the humour coming out in the photography.”

The winners will be announced on Monday, September 25, so make sure you don’t miss it.
