Welsh Black takes top prize in photo competition
15th October 2023
The Farmers’ Union of Wales has chosen its winning photograph for the 2024 charity calendar, and what a beautiful choice it is.
The Farmers’ Union of Wales (FUW) will bring the calendar to market from the 27th November, launching at the Royal Welsh Winter Fair. If you can’t make the fair, you can buy the calendar from FUW country offices after the show’s completion. £1 for each calendar sale will go towards the charity of choice by the FUW president; the Wales Air Ambulance.
Sarah Carr took the winning photo, named ‘The Welsh Black with Cadair Idris in the background’. The photo takes its place as the top prize image. You will find the Welsh Black on the cover of each new 2024 calendar.
There were more winners chosen, congratulations to:
Rebecca Williams; Adrienne Thorpe; Elliw Jones-Evans; Adrian Morgan; Tracey Evans; Grace Marshall; Helen Powell; Chloe Hyde; Elliw Baines Roberts; Andrew Roberts and Gwenllian Evans.
Sarah Carr is the well-deserved receiver of £250, the top prize for the front cover photograph. She will receive her prize on the Monday at the Royal Welsh Winter Fair. The other winners of the competition, whose photographs will also be displayed in the calendar, will receive a free copy of the bilingual calendar.
Choosing a winner was “no easy task”
FUW President Ian Rickman has this to say about the competition:
“The competition has proven popular again this year and it was a pleasure to look through the entries. It was no easy task mind, as so many wonderful images were sent in from across Wales.
“What this competition has highlighted again is that farming matters to all of us in one way or another and that our family farms are vital in not just the way of life here in Wales, but also in looking after the countryside and our livestock. Congratulations to all the winners and thank you for showcasing farming and our countryside in such a wonderful way.”
You can buy a calendar from your local county office. The FUW will update when the calendars will be available on their social channels.
They will also be sold on the FUW stand at the Royal Welsh Winter Fair for £5 each. Remember, £1 per sale will go towards the Wales Air Ambulance, a fantastic cause.
