A misty morning provided the inspiration for a photograph that has won Cambridge FC’s Photo of the Year competition.
Donna Jones’ photograph ‘Ready to Go’ has been judged to be the winner of our inaugural competition, sponsored by AB Insurance Advice’s Annette Breen.
Twelve photographs were selected between June and August for judging by an independent panel of football photographers.
They found it difficult to choose between Donna Jones’ excellent image and three photographs all taken by Deborah Hunter.
Donna’s prize is a gift basket donated by AB Insurance Advice containing goodies from local businesses Little Olive Tree, Lake Adventures (kayaking), Elephant Ollie, Solo Hair Design and a few other surprises.
For her outstanding efforts, Deborah Hunter received a gift voucher to be used at our sponsor Onyx Cambridge.
Our top three photographs were judged to be:
- Ready to go (Donna Jones)
- Defensive wall (Deborah Hunter)
- Impact imminent (Deborah Hunter)
- Effort pays off (Deborah Hunter)
Congratulations to all our finalists and we thank them for providing photographic memories of the 2018 season that help sum up the joy of playing football.
Enzo Giordani – editor and photographer for the popular in-the-back-of-the.net website.
Grant Stantiall – long-time football photographer whose images have been viewed millions of times on Flickr.
Louis Roberts – Cambridge FC’s official photographer whose work features in our club magazine RED.
Grant Stantiall said: “Some fantastic captures here. It’s good to see people taking photos and getting involved. All nominees should be pleased with their efforts and I’d encourage them to continue to take as many photos as they can.
“These on-field and off-field images tell a story of the game. Hopefully, more people will drag their cameras along next year and participate in what is an awesome initiative by the club.”
