Photography competition…the winners!

by The Gateshead Housing Company & filed under News, On your estate.

A few months ago we launched our photography competition to celebrate what you love about where you live.

We asked for photographs of something which reflects your area, such as a place you love to visit with your friends and family, or the people who make your community thrive.

We were delighted with the high standard of entries, which were judged by our photographer Steve Brock.

Here are the winning photos – each winner received a £50 Sainsbury’s voucher. Congratulations to our winners and thank you to everyone else who entered!


South Gateshead

Anthony Bush – The Flying Scotsman

Steve said: “This photo captures two iconic figures – The Flying Scotsman and the Angel.”



West Gateshead

Christina Pickering – Greenfields garden

Steve said: “This is a nice and colourful well-composed picture that shows the pride taken in their garden.”




East Gateshead

Anthony Charlesworth – Church poppies

Steve said: “I like the colour pop effect. Some imagination and technical skills have been used.”



Central Gateshead

Kelly Hanlon – Saltwell Park

Steve said: “This montage shows Saltwell Park off in a variety of good ways, during the different seasons, and it’s plain to see how much the family enjoys their visits there.”
