Best of the rest competition 19th September 2016

Entries for the ‘Best of the rest’ competition had to have been entered in a competition last year but not been awarded first, second or third. It was the first time we have had this competition. The idea was to give images that did not appeal to the whims of the judge on the night a chance for recognition. It is the only time that entries from a previous season have been knowingly allowed to be used in another season.
