The contest is run by the New Forest National Park Authority and the New Forest Centre in Lyndhurst, and seeks to recognise outstanding photographs, paintings and sculptures that have been inspired by the New Forest.

The results were announced at a preview evening at the New Forest Centre in Lyndhurst, where the free public exhibition of the competition entries is open daily until Saturday 3 September. Visitors are also able to buy selected artworks.

In addition to the three prize winners, Kim Weiler’s 3D piece ‘The Forester’ was highly commended by the judges.

Winner Teresa Rogers, from Redlynch, said: ‘This is the second year I’ve entered the competition. I’m thrilled to have won and to have my work hung alongside such talented artists. I will be entering again next year and I strongly encourage others to take part in this wonderful competition.’
