Roma Therapy photo wins RDA competition(January 26, 2015)
The winners of the RDA Photographic Competition 2014, supported by Players of People’s Postcode Lottery, have been announced.
The overall winning photograph was taken by Karen Thompson, Senior Instructor at Kesteven RDA in Lincolnshire. Called ‘Having some ‘Roma’ Therapy’, Karen’s picture of a joyful rider looking down from his pony, Roma, was a clear favourite with the judges.
There were four categories in this year’s competition: RDA is Fun, Magic Moments, A New Challenge and Indispensable Volunteers, with winners chosen for each category, out of which an overall winner was selected by People’s Postcode Lottery.
Magic Moments was won by Polly Wheeler and her beautiful picture, ‘Sibling Pride’. RDA is Fun was won by Karen Thompson with ‘Having some ‘Roma’ Therapy’. A New Challenge was won by Jeanette Williams with her picture ‘Wow, This is Hard Work’. Indispensable Volunteers was won by Sophie Hurrell-Day with her picture ‘Jordan’s Countryside Challenge’.
The annual competition is open to anyone involved with RDA’s 500 groups all over the UK, and aims to capture the many positive elements of the charity’s activities.
Hazel Johnstone, Trusts Manager at People’s Postcode Lottery said: “It was a really tough decision for the whole team at People’s Postcode Lottery to decide on the winning picture, as all the entries were so great, but Karen’s picture really brought such a smile to all our faces that it was obviously the winner. Congratulations to Karen!”
