The Bevan Foundation recently ran a competition to find photographs and images from residents of Cwmafan, Treharris and Treherbert to feature in three upcoming reports.

The report looks to understand the economic and social development of the three communities through to the present day to inform how they may develop in the future – what assets they have or what needs to develop to grasp their potential for all residents who live there.

The competition was looking for images of each area, the amenities, landscapes, green spaces or local landmarks. There were prizes of £25 available for images to use in the body of the report and £50 for images to use as front covers. The Bevan Foundation were delighted with the response.

Project lead Lloyd Jones said “We were sent lots of fantastic images, there are some great photographers in each community. The variety if images were great too, especially with the snow we have had recently. The winning images will make each individual report unique and stand out. They will help to highlight the individual characteristics of each place but also the response shows how important each place is to the residents.”

One winner was “over the moon” and would put the money towards a new camera lens, another said they would donate their prize to a local nursery. Another told the Bevan Foundation “I’m really pleased to be one of the winners featured within the report. I have been taking landscape photos around the Treherbert area on my hikes for a while and I really love how this photo shows the beauty that we have around the area. I have recently signed up for a digital photography course, so I’m going to put my winnings toward material to purchase the study books that I’ll need”

You can read each report with the winning images in the next few days – stay tuned!
