After much deliberation from our panel of judges, the winners of Canary Wharf Wildlife Photography Competition 2018 were announced at an awards ceremony on Friday 7 December.
Now in its fourth year, the competition is open to all amateur photographers and invites residents, employees, tenants and visitors to photograph the diversity of flora and fauna around the Estate.
Last month, twenty-five shortlisted entries were on display in Adams Plaza Bridge. From these shortlisted entries, a winner from each category was selected.
The winner of the ‘Junior’ category was Nathan-Phua with his striking and colourful photo, Haggard-Leaf. Rob Wilkinson submitted Silver and Blue which secured the ‘Around the Streets and Gardens’ prize, and Candy Blackham won the ‘Close Up and Personal’ category with her beautiful Fern Fond image. Elena Chaykina won the ‘Geometric and Organic’ category and the ‘Wildlife and Water’ category was awarded to Victoria Jones
From these category winners, the overall winner of the 2018 Wildlife Photography Competition was Victoria Jones with her eye-catching photo, Hitching a Lift, captured between North Dock and Blackwell Basin, Canary Wharf.
The winner of each category received a £250 Canary Wharf Gift Card, with the overall winner receiving a further £750 Canary Wharf Gift Card.
This year we introduced a Director’s Choice Award which was awarded to Ronin Erdemgil in the ‘Junior’ category for his Fish Supper and to Mark Roman Gold in the ‘Wildlife and Water’ category for his Raising Baby image. Each won a £250 Canary Wharf Gift Card.
