It is a bit later than we intended, but we are now in a position to announce the winner of the photo competition 2017, run jointly with H&E Naturist. We can always wish that we had more entries, but nevertheless we had a good number of images to judge, and of course, it was a difficult job.
Our winner is Paul Montgomery from the Wirral, with a photo taken at Fuerteventura. In his description for the photo, Paul wrote the beach was beautiful, and that Anne, his wife, found the windy conditions “exhilarating” and put to good use by kite surfers seen in the background, with amazing skill.
Paul has won a holiday on the Mediterranean island of Formentera, kindly donated by Astbury Formentera, without whom the competition would be impossible.
The runner-up is Gary Woolley from Shropshire, with a photo of Gill Woolley taken at Zavial Naturist Beach, Sagres, Portugal. Meanwhile entries from Jeremy Dolman, Colin Basire (from New Zealand) and Attila Ambrus (from Romania) complete our line-up. While past winner, New Zealander Glenne Findon, who had one photo judged as highly commended, was clearly after another holiday on the Spanish island.
This was the third competition NAG has run in conjunction with H&E Naturist and other sponsors, the purpose of which has been to show naturism in a positive light. The original aim was to show how recreational and non-sexual social nudity can be compatible with 21st Century living by show that, no matter what we do, clothed or not, it can be full of fun.
We thank everyone that entered and hope you’ll have a great 2018.
