Jeremy Owen, Sales Director of Vita, said, “We have been so delighted with the quality of the entries that we have decided to award many more prizes than we first announced. All the shortlisted entries – 25 in total – will be receiving a special gift and we are awarding four main adult and two junior prizes. I’d recommend that anyone logs on to our new website to see many of the entries. Our thanks go to all the entrants and to the judging panel.»
Along with Jeremy Owen (ably assisted by his wife) and Max Watkins of Vita, the judging panel comprised Nicola Bradbear of Bees for Development, Claire Waring of Bee Craft, Gordon Stokes, a semi-professional photographer and Stephen Fleming of Palam Communications.
Two photographs from Franc Sivic feature on the home page of Vita’s new website. They capture a marvellous sense of beekeeping in Slovenia. Vita is very grateful to Frank for the use of those pictures.
