Army Photographer of The Year - Runner Up 2010

The Army today showcased winning images of soldiers at work and play, as prizes were given to winners of the Army Photographic Competition at the Imperial War Museum.
The competition shows Afghanistan as seen through the soldiers’ eyes, with amateur and professional categories for Best Operational Image. Other categories include Best Sporting Image, Best Non-Operational Image and for the first time this year also includes video/multimedia categories.
The Competition is run by the Army and is open to all Army and Territorial Personnel and Ministry of Defence Civilians who work directly for the Army.
General Sir Peter Wall, Head of the British Army, awarded the winners of the Army Photographic Competition at a special ceremony at the Imperial War Museum on 1 December 2010.
This year categories included:
• Best Operational Video / Multi-media package
• Best Operational Image
• Professional Photographer of the Year
• Amateur Photographer of the Year
• Best Sporting Image of the Year
The award for Professional Photographer of the Year was presented to Cpl Gary Kendall. This was his first photographic role after completing his qualification.
Presenting the awards to the winners, Gen Sir Peter Wall said:
“These photographs show the breadth of British Army activity, not only in Afghanistan but across the full range of operations, tasks and commitments. Today’s presentation recognises the work of our professional and amateur photographers and illustrates the many faces of Army life. There are some outstanding images that have taken skill and in some cases courage to capture and I congratulate them all. This is a splendid collection.”
