This is the Canary Wharf tower like you’ve never seen it—or at least that’s how camera enthusiast Elena Chaykmina found it… her reflective snapshot of One Canada Square won the ‘Geometric and Organic’ prize in this year’s Canary Wharf photography competition.
But overall winner was Victoria Jones who snapped two cute baby Great Crested Grebes (above) getting a lift on mummy bird’s back in Millwall’s North Dock.
She gets the grand prize of £1,000 in gift vouchers to spend on Christmas for her stunning picture taken near her home by the Blackwall Basin.
Rob Wilkinson’s unusual quick snap won him top prize in ‘Around the Streets and Gardens’ category.
The winners of the contest now in its fourth year were selected from 25 shortlisted entries on display at the Adams Plaza Bridge and all get gift vouchers.
Candy Blackham won the ‘Close Up’ category with her micro close-up image of a fern leaf.
Organisers invited anyone including residents, employees, tenants and visitors to record the diversity of flora and fauna around the business district.
Even youngsters got busy with their cameras, like 15-year-old Nathan Phua who won the ‘junior’ section with his striking snap of a ‘haggard’ leaf.
The winner of each category received a £250 gift card, Special selections introduced this year were the ‘Directors Choice’ awards to youngster Ronin Erdemgil in the Junior category and to Mark Gold for his wildlife image, both receiving gift cards.
