This Summer The MAD Museum ran a Photography Competition and asked both amateur and professional photographers to send in their favourite snaps. We were inundated by some truly amazing pictures and want to say a big thank you to everyone who took part!
In each of the 3 categories (Adults, Teens and Kids) we had the difficult task of selecting two winning photos. Here are the chosen triumphant 6 images…
