The winning colour from Fenwick & Tilbrook's Norfolk Day paint competition

Norfolk Day competition winner inspires our next colour

July 27, 2018

A competition we ran for Norfolk Day is helping to inspire our next new colour. The winner has just been announced today on Norfolk Day [27th July 2018].


In celebration of the fine county where we are based, Fenwick & Tilbrook asked people to submit a photo of somewhere or something they love about Norfolk. The photo would then be used by us to help develop a new colour, due for launch later this year. The winner – Carl Howell from Titchwell – submitted a photograph he had taken himself at Brancaster. Carl, who is actually a self-taught lifestyle and wedding photographer, grew up on the Norfolk coast and his stunning, broody image of the beach stood out from all the entries.


Winner Carl Howell said: “I am over the moon to have won this competition with my photo. I am very lucky that Brancaster is right on my doorstep and I regularly walk my dog there. It’s just such a beautiful spot and it seemed the perfect picture to show what I love about Norfolk.”


Clare Tilbrook, director at Fenwick & Tilbrook, said: “We had a great response to our Norfolk Day competition and received some fantastic photos which sum up why Norfolk is such a great place to be. Carl’s beautiful photo was a clear winner – it shows great stillness and is stunning yet peaceful. We’re currently working on the exact colour but the new paint inspired by Carl’s photo will be called Still Norfolk. We’re looking forward to launching it very soon.”


Using the highest quality ingredients to deliver paint with exceptional chroma and intensity of colour, Fenwick & Tilbrook paint is made fresh to order and delivered next day. Sample pots, painted cards and paint are all available to order online or through our specialist retail partners across Norfolk.
