Nature: King Penguins by Roger Litton

Jury comments:

“Call the national Geographic….A stunning shot. ”

“One of those moments when you know it’s the shot of a lifetime! ”


Action: Body boarding at Sennen cove
by “soopercity”

Jury comments:

“Great shot, the reflection in the wet sand and the way that the trailing board leads the eye into this scene shows good photographic competence, but for me the memory of my holidays in Cornwall came flooding back courtesy of this touching image.”

“Classic stock shot on a fun packed holiday, bring on the surf! A memory to cherish on one of the many fabulous beaches in Cornwall.”


Cottage Life: Beach Days by ‘Dog Hook’

Jury comments:

“This shot says everything there is to say about an English holiday by the sea, Dad with his makeshift shorts and sleeves rolled up, the pier ubiquitous of an English beach resort shot and the expression of the child subject – Wonderful.”

“I love this 60’s black and white photograph with dads rolled up trousers and your frilly swimsuit. I’m ready for an ice cream now! ”


Congratulations to you all ! We’ll get in touch with you as soon as possible to make sure you’ll receive the prize.
