Winning entries

The winner of the Ty Glas y Dorlan photography competition has been chosen. 

Out of more than 90 entries, James Saddler’s photograph of the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal, near Pontypool, caught the judges’ attention. 

Second place went to Neil Daniels, for his image of the Afon Llwyd, in Abersychan, and Paul Villa’s photograph of the canal at Sebastopol came third. 

All three will be put on display at Torfaen Council’s new multi-purpose wellbeing hub in Cwmbran, which is due to open next month. 

Joanne Newman, Adult Services Group Manager, said: “We loved the colour and tranquillity of James’ photograph. 

“The theme of the competition was Views and Nature Around the Waterways of Torfaen and we were overwhelmed with the number of people who entered, and with the incredibly high standard of photographs. Thank you to everyone who took part.” 

Councillor David Daniels, Executive Member for Adult Services and Housing, added: “The three images really do celebrate the beauty of Torfaen’s waterways, and we hope everyone who visits the centre will enjoy them.” 

As well as having their photographs put on display, the winner will receive a £25 gift voucher, with the runners-up getting £15 and £10 respectively. 

Ty Glas y Dorlan (The Kingisher), in Thornhill, will offer a mix of long-term flat tenancies, respite care and communal facilities.
