And the winner is.....

5 October 2017

Youth Concern have been announced as the winners of the 2017 CIB photo competition.

The Aylesbury-based charity beat over 30 charities and 140 photos to take the first prize, followed by St Francis' Children's Society in 2nd place and Buckinghamshire Mind in 3rd place.

Chiltern Music Therapy, Aylesbury Vineyard Storehouse and Berryfields Parish Council were recognised as highly commended for their entries.

The photo competition, sponsored by Green Banana Marketing, aims to highlight the great social action taking place across Buckinghamshire and to celebrate the inspirational charities and community groups and the difference they are making every day.

Organiser of the competition, Caroline Hatton, said, “We had 140 pictures from over 30 different organisations and it wasn’t an easy task to select a winner.  The standard of entries was extremely high and truly demonstrated the huge variety of charity and community groups we have in Buckinghamshire.  The winning entry from Youth Concern stood out for us as it is a fun, but meaningful, portrait of the very people they help every day.”

Sponsor Giles Robertson of Green Banana Marketing said, "I am delighted to have sponsored the Community Impact Bucks photo competition and Awards, which has been a great success.  I would like to congratulate all who entered; as everyone one of the entries gave us a real sense of the charities' inspiration for making a difference in our community.

"The competition chimes with Green Banana Marketing’s passion and belief in helping charities and social enterprises, tell their story through great marketing."

To enter the competition, local not-for-profit organisations were invited to submit up to five photos which capture the work they do and the people they help.  Prizes of a tablet computer for the winner, 2nd prize of £150 cash donation and 3rd prize of a half-day free marketing consultancy from Green Banana Marketing were donated by the sponsor.
