Awards Night Fun at London Waterloo

We have really enjoyed the start of our 10th Anniversary Year and we hope everyone involved has too. There were so many fantastic entries to our tenth competition, showing once again how lucky we are to live in such a varied and fascinating country.

It was great to meet our winning entrants in person at the opening night of the exhibition at London Waterloo station on November 21st.

You can see a short film of the evening here .

Our special guest, Julia Bradbury, really helped to make the evening a success with her friendliness and enthusiasm and she presented awards to both our Young Landscape Photographer of the Year, Hannah Faith Jackson and our overall winner, Matthew Cattell.

 

If you haven't yet seen a full list of 2016 winners, you can see it here.

A very big thank you to VisitBritain,  the GREAT Campaign and Network Rail. The competition couldn't have happened without them.

T he GREAT Britain #OMGB 'Home of Amazing Moments' award was won by Mark Gilligan, who will be enjoying a prize break amongst the beautiful landscapes of Northern Ireland.

 

The Network Rail 'Lines in the Landscape' Award went to Francis Taylor and he will be ascending the dizzy heights of the Forth Bridge to get an amazing view and unique photo opportunity.

   

Many of you will have seen Rachael Talibart's dramatic image, taken at Newhaven during Storm Imogen as a double page spread in the The Sunday Times Magazine in October. She was the winner of their Award this year and also has a further two images in the Awards book. Rachael won a Fujifilm X100T camera, courtesy of our supporters, Fujifilm plus a year's digital subscription to The The Sunday Times.

  
The Adobe Prize was won by Damian Ward, another photographer with three images in this year's book.
