Overall winner

Taken at Camp Taji, Iraq

Overall winner Royal Engineer Section Commander Nick Johns was awarded the highest prize for capturing fellow Sapper from 22 Engineer Regiment and street artist Adam Williams painting Queen Elizabeth II onto a wall in their Camp Taji barracks in Iraq to commemorate Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday in May 2016.

Talking about the moment depicted in the image, Nick comments, “Inspired by a painting of Winston Churchill already present in the barracks when we arrived, Adam Williams took to creating an image of the Queen on the opposite wall to add to our patriotic picture gallery. Military camps in Iraq don’t tend to be the most homely places, so I wanted to mark Adam Williams adding a much-needed dose of colour and creativity to our living quarters. The picture was taken on my Nikon D800 using Nikon 14-24 mm F/2.8 lenses.”

As overall prize winner Nick will receive £750 of photography vouchers. Congratulations Nick!
