Jeremy Owen, Sales Director of Vita (Europe), said « The third annual Vita Photo Competition attracted a record number of entries — twice as many as last year and from even more countries. We are delighted with the increasing level of interest and warmly congratulate the winners and everyone who entered the competition. Our judges faced a difficult choice, and the end result is a great looking Vita calendar for 2014. »
The winning photograph by Trevor Fiddy shows honeybees lined up almost regimentally at the hive entrance. The unusual image was taken early one morning in June and so he entitled it « Who’s First? »
The 2014 Vita Calendar is destined for Vita distributors across the globe, but a medium resolution pdf file of the calendar can be downloaded for free by registered users of the Vita Photo Gallery. Registration is free and it can be accessed at www.vita-europe.com/beehealth/gallery/
