Winning photograph: Discarded Steps by Steve Denby

A photography exhibition, showcasing the winning photographs from 2008's Norwich 12 photography competition, appears at The Forum in Norwich.

The collection boasts an array of historical imagery, displaying Norwich's most iconic buildings.

"The exhibition is an exceptional collection of creative images of some of the city's finest buildings," said Christina Lundberg from Norwich Heart.

The exhibition runs from Monday, 23 - Saturday, 28 March, 2009.

The competition was open to entries from all ages between September and October 2008, and 189 photographs were received by Norwich 12 in total.

The brief for the photographs was to capture the essence of the buildings and what makes them special.

The images on display cover Norwich Castle, Norwich Cathedral, The Great Hospital, The Halls - St Andrew's and Blackfriars', The Guildhall, Dragon Hall, The Assembly House, St James Mill, St John's Roman Catholic Cathedral, Surrey House, City Hall and The Forum.

The overall winner of the competition, a photograph taken of Norwich Castle by local man Steve Denby, was described by the judges as "a daring photograph that stood out with its dramatic and film noir qualities."

The exhibition is free of charge and open 9am to 9pm in The Forum, Norwich, from Monday, 23 - Saturday, 28 March, 2009. For more information, visit the Norwich 12 website.
