The first winner of our Photo Gallery Competition for the month of March is Greenkeeper, Dean Ward from Wakefield Golf Club. Dean receives a £100 voucher to spend in the Pitchcare Store (awarded to all monthly winners) and will go into the final selection of monthly winning photographs for the chance to win a new iPad 5, set to be launched in 2013.
Dean's dramatic photo (pictured right) was of the Wakefield Head Greenkeeper using his 'favourite toy', the battery powered Jacobsen Eclipse 100 on a green, against a backdrop featuring trees and an eye catching sky line.
The photo was shortlisted against 29 entries with 3 other photos by the Pitchcare team of judges and voted by Pitchcare members as their favourite entry in the March's machinery themed category. Dean was "over the moon" with his selection being chosen as the winning photograph, and asked for his thanks to be passed on to all Pitchcare members who voted for his entry. Relevant photographs entered into last months machinery category can be resubmitted to future categories i.e. humour, animals, team, should they also be appropriate.
April's theme is 'Spring' and photos can be easily uploaded from phones, cameras and tablet devices in a matter of a few minutes.
The new Apple iPad 5 due out in 2013 will be awarded to the overall best judged photograph.
