2016 Photography Competition Winners:
We felt the winner, Ruth Broadbent, had really captured the camararderie of our gunners and they enjoyment they get from performing for the Battle Proms audience!
We recieve many entries each year featuring our cannons, but this shot by Martyn White was so crisp and striking that it had to be our winner.
Capturing fireworks and crowds without blur is never an easy task, but Christine Matthews achieved it with this winning shot!
The Team felt this scene from Shannon Baigent really captured a quintessential view of the Battle Proms from deep within the audience.
If you've ever seen one of our cavalry displays, you'll know how fast those horses are moving when they pass the targets! Well done to Steve Blake for capturing this dramatic moment in the 2016 display.
2015 Photography Competition Winners:
We were delighted with this picture by Karen Stephens, putting Combat Stress Fundraising at the heart of the concert setting. We later discovered that Karen had personal experience of a loved one benefitting from the support of our charity partner, making the image even more poignant.
The Battle Proms Team were really taken with this composition, by Kim Benson, celebrating all ages enjoying the Battle Proms experience!
We felt this picture by Christine Deakin White Harrison really captured the energy and excitement of a flag-waving, sing-a-long, Battle Proms firework finale!
Adam Tarshis took first prize at Highclere with his clever shot of a perfectly crisp spitfire framed by the very British and very Battle Proms bowler and flag!
Doug Horne took several great shots of Crown and Empire performing by the lake at the Ragley Hall Battle Proms and we loved the sense of movement speed and power captured by this photo.
If you are joining us for the Battle Proms in 2018, don't forget to pack your camera!
