IMAGE BANK CAMPAIGN: Photo competition - Judging the competition was no easy task - given the number and quality of all the entries. Here we present the winning photos in the six categories

Campaign and Image Bank were staggered by the response to the Image Bank creative photography competition launched by Campaign in the spring.

Campaign and Image Bank were staggered by the response to the Image

Bank creative photography competition launched by Campaign in the

spring.



By the closing date of 31 May, we had received 907 entries across six

categories: Street Life, Private View, Young and Old, Global Brief,

Sporting Life and Working World.



The competition was open to all readers of Campaign, with a top prize of

a trip to New York for two and pounds 1,000 worth of vouchers to spend

at Tapestry, one of London’s leading photographic laboratories.

Runners-up received pounds 250 vouchers to spend at Tapestry.



The judges were Wally Olins of Wolff Olins; the photographer, Paul

Biddle; Campaign’s founding art editor, Roland Schenk; Bartle Bogle

Hegarty’s Will Awdry; Rebecca Willis of Vogue; Robin Bernhard of

Tapestry; and Karen Osborne of Image Bank. They were looking for

challenging work that stimulated debate and pushed the boundaries of the

artform. Part of the fun of judging was the variety of interpretations

of the vaguely worded category headings.



Eventually the jury came up with the selection featured on these

pages.



The winning photographers received their prizes at a party in London

last night. We would like to thank everyone who entered, and leave you

to debate whether you think the prize-winners met the judging

criteria.
