Winner of the Christmas card photo competition chosen


The winner of a photo contest for Christmas cards was announced after the community organization received many “amazing” submissions.

In September, Pentir Pumlumon launched its annual Christmas photo competition with the theme “A Different Way” to find a “fabulous” photo for their 2021 Christmas card.

Dorry Spikes was announced as the winner, with an “atmospheric image captured looking at the stars”.

Dorry said, “The photo was taken in the snow last New Year, up near the mine, between Ysbyty and Pontrhydygroes.

“We celebrated the area’s dark sky status and took oil lamp-lit walks.”

Dorry won a night at the Cambrian Trees Huts in Ysbyty Ystwyth, donated by Adam Lionel and Jane Evans.

Tanya Friswell, Pentir Pumlumon Community and Tourism Development Officer, said: “As always, the quality and quantity of the entries received has been amazing. People love to take photos and they put a lot of thought and imagination into them.

“We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful photogenic area! Our annual photo contest is a wonderful way to celebrate the diverse landscape and see the world through other people’s eyes. Dorry’s photo is now used on Pentir Pumlumon’s Christmas card.

“We also like to share a selection of the posts on our social media pages for people to enjoy.”

Tanya added, “Dorry is a local artist who actually lives in Ysbyty Ystwyth so she won’t have to go far to get her prize. She found the hut beautiful and very cozy and is looking forward to watching even more stars from the whirlpool. “

Pentir Pumlumon is a voluntary non-profit group that aims to improve the economy and community in the Ceredigion highlands.

Tanya continued, “In 2000, an enterprising group of local business owners decided to join forces to create ‘Pentir Pumlumon’, a non-profit community organization that aims to support and improve our communities for the benefit of both locals and tourists.

“The organization has endured where others have failed and has grown stronger and stronger. They encourage collaboration and teamwork and have created a large network of like-minded business owners across the Ceredigion Upland area.

“Despite the trials and tribulations of Covid, Pentir Pumlumon will be in an even stronger position at the end of 2021. Our new website, which launched in August, is proving to be a great success, attracting more and more companies to be added to the list.

“We offer free website listings for businesses related to North Ceredigion tourism and we look forward to hearing from you. For more information, contact [email protected]
