[Updated Sept 16] The Spokes 2013 Summer Competition – for a photo and caption on the theme Cycling with a Purpose – has now been judged.
The judges had no difficulty in selecting the top entry. For the second year in a row our top prizewinner was…
Mark James from Dunbar – with this highly purposeful entry
Judging then became much more difficult, with a range of excellent entries, but after much debate the top 15 entries were selected.
Second place – Charlie Wood, Portobello
Third Place – Polly Waters, Aberlady
Fourth Place – Oliver Brookes, Marchmont – whose picture is a paean of praise for the children, parents and teachers of Sciennes Primary

Unfortunately Spokes lost this entry from Cait Pearce of Currie, so it was not judged. We will send a consolation prize. Cait also sent an explanation of the background to her picture – we have included it at the end of the above all-entries file.
