Coppull’s Deborah Ford and Chloe Atkinson have been crowned winners of our first ‘Let’s Celebrate Coppull’, photography competition.
We joined forces with Coppull Parish Council in September to launch our new photography competition, with an adult’s category and a special category for under 16’s, ‘Coppull through a child’s eye’.
The 19 images in the final, were put to a public vote across our social media pages, and Nina Ascroft.
Coppull’s Debbie Day Care proprietor, Deborah Ford’s photograph, ‘Follow the Yellow Brick Road’, was chosen as the adult winner for its composition and use of colour. The judges felt that it really had the feel-good factor.
Deborah Ford said: “I saw the Home Truths competition on Facebook and around Coppull.
“I am really delighted to win the competition. I live in Coppull and the countryside that surrounds it. It’s good to be able to portray the village in such a positive light.”
11-year-old, Chloe Atkinson’s photograph, ‘Blainscough Walk’, was chosen as the winner in the ‘Coppull Through a Child’s Eye’ category, for the atmosphere, energy, and sense of family it conveyed.
Chloe Atkinson said: “I entered this competition because I enjoy taking photographs and very proud!”
Home Truths Director, John Ascroft, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the response and even Father Christmas.
“It was a tough decision to select just two winners, however, all the judges felt that both Deborah and we hope that they both continue to enjoy their passion for photography.”

We are looking to roll out new photography competitions to additional villages in the area, later this year. To find out more and how you can enter by emailing Cathy at firstname.lastname@example.org
