But decide they did with a unique image of a great spotted woodpecker by Angus Lamont scooping The Koniotes Award for the best overall photograph. You can see a list of the winners and all of other winning photographs below.

The event this year generated a significantly higher number of entries than previously and, once again, the standard was very high making it difficult for members to choose just one photograph per category.
