Congratulations to the winners of our 2018 Photo Competition
The overall quality of images submitted to the competition this year was very high. Well done to everyone who entered! Winning is nice, but of great importance is that you all gained new skills by trying to sort your best images and then target this competition.
Judging is not easy in such an open topic. Our team scaled back the images from many hundreds, to around 20. We then took a lot of time to carefully review each of these finalists - of which 3 were chosen.
'The Window' by Javier ROLDAN PEREZ
"This image is a great story telling shot and is technically very well produced. The viewer is left looking for a period at the dimensional aspect of the young girl to the older lady. A standout image - well done!" - Darran Leal

'One Too Many' by Richard Misquitta

'DIVE IN' by Elektra Vitari
"A fantastic eye catching seascape that is technically well shot, is eye catching and tells a story. " - Darran Leal
