The winners of the 2013 Jurassic Coast Award photography competition have been announced at the Fine Foundation Chesil Beach Centre.
The free competition, sponsored by the Fine Family Foundation, endorsed by the Jurassic Coast Trust and supported by Dorset Wildlife Trust, was launched to find images of the Jurassic Coast, which provide a new take on this stunning and dramatic coastline. Over 1,200 entries were received in three categories which were, ‘My special place’, ‘Point in time’ and ‘Close up coast’.
My Special Place – ‘Sea fishing at Seaton Bay’, Devon, by James Osmond
Point in Time – ‘Crepuscular and Cretaceous’ – Hedbury Quarry, by Paul Haynes (and overall winner)

The Jurassic Coast Award exhibition, including the winning photos, can now be seen free of charge at the Chesil Beach Centre daily 10am-4pm until 19 April.
