Darren scoops our photo competition
There was special reason to celebrate this Christmas for Darren Girvan, who became the second winner of the Brian Logue Memorial Competition.
Darren’s snap of Rutherglen Town Hall at night was picked out by Brian’s family as their favourite of all our entries.
The 14 year old was presented with the trophy by Reformer editor Douglas Dickie just before Christmas.
He will also receive a cheque for £75 courtesy of Media Scotland.
Brian’s wife, Annette, and son, Chris, made the decision and it proved a tough one.
But Annette said: “Brian would have loved it, it’s quite fitting that a picture of the Town all has won.”
Chris added: “I think of my dad every time I see the Town Hall on the road home, it really stands out.”
Darren, a pupil at Stonelaw High, was delighted to scoop top prize.
He said: “I’m really pleased my photo of Rutherglen Town Hall was chosen as the winner and I am glad Mr Logue’s family liked it.”
Second prize of £ 50 went to West Coats pupil Marissa Cooper (9) for her snap of her family’s Christmas tree.
She said the tree was special to her family, and Chris said: “That is so fitting, it pretty much sums my dad up, he was all about his family.”
Third prize and a cheque for £25 went to 10 year old Lewis Mooney, who goes to St Bride’s Primary, for his picture of the Kelpies in Falkirk.
Two other entrants also win 325 vouchers at Tesco Burnside after the Reformer team picked their favourites.
The prizes go to Rohini Ana Paul, a pupil at St Bride’s Primary, and Michael Trainer from Trinity High.
Reformer editor Douglas Dickie said: “The entries were fantastic, it was an extremely difficult choice for ourselves and the family.
“Well done to all the winners and we hope everyone who entered keeps on snapping away.”
Brian was Reformer photographer over two spells.
He died on Boxing Day 2013 after a short illness.
