Two striking views of iconic city landmarks have won the FANN17 and iWitness24 photography competition.
The competition - part of the Festival of Architecture in Norwich & Norfolk (FANN17) - saw photographers enter images of architecture with the theme memory. Twelve finalists had their work displayed in an exhibition at The Forum this month where members of the public were invited to vote for their favourite photographs.
Martin Thirkettle won the open category with his beautiful photograph of The Forum taken through the doorway of the tower of St Peter Mancroft Church.
Mr Thirkettle, who achieved an impressive 25pc of the public votes, said: 'The competition was a wonderful celebration of past and present architecture in our fine city.'
Eight-year-old Dylan Stokes won the under 16s category with his great photograph of Norwich Castle standing proud on top of the castle mound, and he said taking part in the competition had helped him to look at buildings differently.

Jerene Irwin, President Norfolk Association of Architects and Director of FANN17 said: 'This is the third festival at which we have run a photography competition in association with iWitness24. We had more than 100 entries and it was a very difficult job narrowing them down to the shortlist displayed as part of our Architects' Exhibition.'
FANN17 continues throughout October with films at Cinema City, a guided walk at UEA, children's half-term activities at Norwich Castle, an exhibition at Hudson Gallery and the annual Norwich Lecture at UEA on November 2.
