Shed Creative wins photo competition!

Huge congratulations to our Shed Creative Philippa Gedge, who has just won the Cornish Traditional Cottages 2012 Brochure Cover Photo Competition! 

Her beautiful photo captured the imagination of the staff at CTC, who said this about the win:

Congratulations to Philippa Gedge, who has won our 2012 Brochure Cover Photo Competition with this great shot of a Cornish fisherman in St Ives making a traditional willow lobster pot. Philippa is a London based photographer specialising in portraits, weddings, events and PR work. She was visiting friends in Cornwall for the weekend. On a day trip to St Ives she saw a fisherman making lobster pots... and pulled the camera out. With so many great entries for this competition we were spoilt for choice, but we thought Philippa captured the essence of Cornwall in this unique image, a county that runs at a different pace, a pace that allows time to take in its rugged and spectacular beauty. All of the staff here at Cornish Traditional Cottages would like to thank everyone who participated in the competition. It was so successful that we have decided to do the same again for next year. In the next few days the 2013 brochure cover competition will be up and running. Go to toward the end of the week to submit your great photos of Cornwall.
