'Together' Competition Winners

Here are the winners of our 2022 'Together' competition.

As always, we received many excellent entries. Selecting a winner wasn't easy, but we eventually settled on three prizewinners and four honourable mentions.

CONGRATULATIONS to our winners and THANK YOU to everyone who entered!

Winner Daniel Razniewski will receive a Manfrotto tripod, with the second- and third-prize winners receiving a LEE Filters Big Stopper and a Karl Taylor Technical Lighting Pack respectively.

1st Prize 

Newlyweds under an umbrella

Daniel Razniewski

This beautiful image of a newlywed couple couldn’t articulate the theme of ‘Together’ any better. It captures a wonderful moment when the subjects' union has been affirmed, and they clearly intend to honour their commitment come rain or shine. Although the concept of the shot is not necessarily unique, Daniel has executed it perfectly, with excellent lighting, pose and juxtaposition.

2nd Prize

Elderly couple carrying bowls
Lee FIlters Big Stopper Prize

Mohanan Oruvayalil

In contrast with the jubilation of the first-prize image, this shot illustrates that ‘togetherness’ must be sustained through life, work and compromise to ensure that we are stronger together than alone. Wonderfully framed and composed with the correct balance of depth of field and intrigue, this shot is a pleasure to take in.

3rd Prize

Lee FIlters Lighting Gels Technical Pack Prize

Andrew Paquette

A more abstract but nevertheless beautiful approach to our theme. The delicate combination of form, texture, poise and high-contrast but well-controlled lighting delivers an image that may appear simple at first. With closer investigation, however, the intricacies of the craft at work become clear. An inspiring example of a still life very well executed.

Highly Commended

These images didn't quite make it into our top three, but were definitely worthy of an honourable mention.

  1. This is some great work. I love the lighting with the umbrella and I wonder how many drops it took to get the one of the flower standing in the glass? Great job all of the winners.
