Judges at the Suffolk Owl Sanctuary (S.O.S.) at Stonham Barns had over 350 images submitted, from which just eight winners have been selected.
Prizes have been allocated for the popular Suffolk Owl Sanctuary Photo Competition 2017 - and now organisers are looking for their next round of winners.
The competition was judged across two categories: junior and senior, each of which had first, second and third prizes allocated.
The top prize in the senior category, awarded to Claire Grasby, was a free photo day experience at the sanctuary, worth £80.
Ms Grasby said she was “over the moon” to find out she had won, and couldn’t wait for the prize giving at the Sanctuary in April.

She said: “In 2017 I entered Suffolk Owl Sanctuary’s Photo Competition for the second time, and I was over the moon when I found out I’d won! I have visited the Sanctuary on several occasions now, and have found it a very welcoming and friendly place to visit, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in owl’s or photography.
“I am very much looking forward to enjoying my prize of a Photo Day at the Sanctuary in April!”
