Winners snap up top prizes in Bath in a Snapshot photographic contest
Hearts were racing for all the right reasons at Bath Clinic this week as the winners of a city-wide photographic competition were announced.
The 30 finalists and their guests were able to view each other's creativity and enjoy a buffet and drinks at a temporary gallery at the Claverton Down hospital before the top three photographs were unveiled.
The Bath in a Snapshot photographic contest, run by The Bath Chronicle with BMI Bath Clinic, marked the private hospital's 30th anniversary and saw amateur photographers of all ages from all over the city submit images in a bid to win £500 and spend the day with a Bath Chronicle photographer.
Readers were given the chance to pick their top 30 photographs and the 30 finalists were invited to an unveiling ceremony at the hospital, where the top three, chosen by the executive director of BMI Rod Mason and Bath Chronicle editor, Lynne Fernquest, were announced.

Mr Mason said he was delighted with not only the number but the high standard of entries.
"It was the hospital's wish for the competition to celebrate the harmony of history and cutting-edge thinking in the city," Mr Mason told the invited guests.
"Bath Clinic, like The Bath Chronicle, stands for tradition and trust, but both are not only at the cutting edge of technology but leading the way in their relevant fields."
Ms Fernquest said: "We were delighted to work with Bath Clinic on such a creative project.
"We were delighted that it captured the imagination of our readers, the photographers and the 1,000 or so online voters."
The top 30 photographs will now go on display at the hospital bringing cheer to patients and brightening the newly refurbished hospital walls.
