Photographic Competition Winners in the Frame
At the national Focus on Imaging show at NEC Birmingham on Monday 4th March, prizes were presented to winners of the 2012 On the Move national competition for disabled photographers.
The competition is jointly organised by the Disabled Photographers’ Society and Mobility Choice, the charity behind the annual Mobility Roadshow.
In this second year of the competition, the Sport in Motion theme to celebrate London’s Olympic and Paralympic Games attracted some stunning entries, providing once again a challenge for the judging panel to reach a final decision on the category winners. They are –
Over 18 years category
Michael Abbott from Bedfordshire with ‘Gold Maybe Silver’, taken at the men’s C2 Paralympic canoe event at the Lee Valley White Water Centre.
12 to 17 years category
Sophie Taylor from Lincolnshire with ‘Minimalistic’, which represents
two of her passions: horse riding and photography.
Under 12 years category
Angus Brown from Lincolnshire with ‘Going Going Gone’,
capturing motorsport speed in motion.
The winners prize package includes a Merlin Annual Pass for a disabled person and carer, offering entry to a range of top UK attractions such as the London Eye, LEGOLAND Windsor and Madame Tussauds for 12 months; plus Calumet photographic accessories.
The winning and short-listed entries were displayed on the Disabled Photographers’ stand at Focus on Imaging and will form a 4-week public exhibition at Calumet Photographic in central London from Tuesday 9 April until Thursday 2 May 2013.
Details of On the Move 2013 will be announced when launched later in the year.
On the Move is supported by Calumet, Merlin Entertainments and Mary Walker Exhibitions.
