For the October photo of the month we were searching for an image that summed up the celebrations of India.
We had a lot of really good entries but with 89 votes Ashika Sripathi is the winner with the image “Diwali with diyas made at home”. Well done to Ashika, we will be in touch about your prize.
Thank you to everyone taking part, either by submitting images or voting. Keep an eye out for the theme for November which will be announced soon.
