The Winner of AS Photography Award

THE WINNER OF #AnnaSteinhouseAward Photography Competition

Good morning all!

A very special THANK YOU goes to all of you, who submitted your work for AS Photography Competition themed #AS_MyNewWorld aiming to record combined experiences of people in the UK during and post lockdown. The judges on our panel saw an incredible quality of submissions and a great variety of interpretations of the theme.

It was also great to feel part of such a vast creative community, so thank you all for this.

It was truly difficult to select a winner amongst the incredible quality of the entries.

However, after three days of due deliberation, as promised, the panel is now ready to announce Gilberto Moleiro Papa @gilbertoski from Manchester as the Winner of 1st Prize of the competition. Gilberto's work titled "35 Days of Lockdown' won with the majority of the votes. I am sure you will all join me in congratulating Gilberto in this great achievement.

There were quite a few other works that caught the attention of the judges. Here I would like to name a few Runners-up:

Shona @marlos_marvels from Carshalton, Surrey with her portrait of Marlo

Mert Kece @plankingradish from Edinburgh with his 'Bullet Proof...I Wish I Was'

Bernadette @bernadetteesz from Woolwich with her 'Quarantine Haircut by me' Ornela Aliaj @ornela_aliaj_photography from London with her 'Wearing a Mask' Steve Perkins @_steveperkins_ from Canterbury with his 'Brighton, July'20'
