SummerPix2018: some of the final week's entries

 

Put down your cameras. After four weeks of furious photo taking, our Summer Pix 2018 competition is over. We’ve been overwhelmed by the number of entries – almost 2,000 – and astonished by the high quality of the photographs you sent in.

Each week, while going through the entries, our picture editors, Brenda Fitzsimons and Alan Betson, have expressed their admiration for the photographic skills on display.

“We saw many photographs that were of good enough quality to grace the front page of the newspaper,” said Betson. “It’s a great reminder of the talent out there. And we should also remind people that if they take great shots, do send them in because we are always on the look-out for strong images.”

The competition is closed now, but here are the best entries from the final week. On Tuesday, August 21st, we’ll publish the winning photo. Thank you to every single person who took part. Keep snapping.
