Announcing the winners of Amberol’s annual photo competition!

We are delighted to announce the winners of this year’s Amberol photo competition which highlights Amberol’s self-watering products at their very best.

Firstly, we would like to thank everyone who entered – we really enjoy seeing all your photos of our self-watering planters on the streets of Britain – and further afield. We are always impressed by the results of all the hard work that goes into making our villages, towns and cities look beautiful.

The hardest part of the competition is choosing a winner from so many great entries - but it is a competition and so there must be a winner. After some deliberation from our judges, our congratulations go to this year’s deserving winners.

First prize goes to Gill Matthews of Kingsbridge in Bloom in South Devon for her photo of ‘Jack Pot’ relaxing in front of an Amberol self-watering beehive planter. Gill wins goods worth £1000 for her efforts.

Second prize goes to Raleigh Town Council with a photo from Councillor Ian Ward, who submitted a great photo of Amberol’s self-watering promenade planters and an up-the-pole basket bringing some colour to Rayleigh High Street. Councillor Ian Ward wins goods to the value of £500.

Third place proved difficult to decide so we awarded two prizes. Carol Devos who entered a stunning photo of an Amberol beehive planter in Belgium which was bursting with blooms and colour. The photo was submitted on behalf of Bota Concept in Belgium who have 60 Amberol beehive planters. Jo Chiddick also won 3rd prize for her photo of Amberol’s self-watering fountain planters in Norwich. Both entrants win £250 of Amberol goods

The quality of entries was so high this year that we also gave out two special Judges’ Awards which went to Graham Long for his great image of Gravesend Town centre and to Ali Bowley of Draycott in Bloom who both win goods to the value of £100.

Once again, thanks to all those who entered – and to our hard working judges for making such a difficult decision. We love seeing how you are making a visible difference to the places where you live and work.

We are always delighted to see Amberol products in action, so please do email any photos that you would like to share to info@amberol.co.uk. Even if you weren’t a winner, keep your eyes peeled and you may see your photos on some of our literature, on our Facebook page or on our website. If you do see your photo being used anywhere, let us know and we will send you a small thank you gift!
