Our annual 24-hour photography event saw hundreds of you exploring London, cameras at the ready to photograph everything the city has to offer. Knowing that you would capture some amazing images, we gave Photo 24 attendees various chances towin £1500worth of Fujifilm equipment. During the event the Photo 24-ers were given a ‘treasure hunt’ list of scenes to find and capture, and a winner was chosen at random from those who completed the list. In addition, after the event attendees were invited to submit their images into three competition categories, Best Abstract, Best Icon of London and Best Street. Each attendee was allowed to enter three images into each category. We received over 800 images and the judges – editor Will Cheung, contributing editor Kingsley Singleton and digital editor Jemma Dodd – spent hours looking through your shots. It was a tough decision and there were so many great images across all three categories, but only three can be crowned winners. Congratulations to Chris Andrews who won the Best Abstract category, Gareth Danks, winner of the Best Icon of London, and finally Neetha Atukorale, winner in the Best Street photo category. When we told them about their success, the three winners had this to say: Chris :“Fabulous!Lookingat(andbeingfurther inspiredby) the superbqualityof all the images submittedforthecompetitions,Ifeelextremely priviledged to have had my image selected.”
