Last month, we ran our very first photography competition asking readers to take a snap of their favourite things to do, experience or places in London during December and January. Above is the winning picture from William Ly, who came in 1st place with his shot of a “headless” breakdancer on the Southbank. He wins a new Polaroid X720E waterproof digital camcorder, a £100 gift voucher to enjoy a “meal for two in the dark” courtesy of Dans Le Noir AND a free pass to a Culture Club Photography Workshop. We’d also like to congratulate Chris Parrado (2nd place), who gets a three-course meal for two at Little Bay and 50% off a Culture Club Photography Workshop, and finally Roxanne Grant (3rd place), who wins two tickets for any film at the Ritzy cinema in Brixton and 25% off a Culture Club Photography Workshop. Thank you to everyone who entered – and to see more of our favourite shots, click here to visit our Tumblr site.
1st place: William Ly, Southbank
“I shot this when I was out and about along the Southbank visiting the chocolate festival. I only realised that the man’s head had completely disappeared when the film was developed!”
2nd place: Chris Parrado, Natural History Museum: Mammals room
“Interesting place… (it’s) quiet and relaxed and also you can touch every sculpture… (it’s) very interactive as well and also pretty near to the V&A – that’s a magical place too”
3rd place: Roxane Grant, Hampstead Heath
“This was taken during a stroll on Hampstead Heath, It’s a beautiful part of London during a bright winter’s day. Lots of people walking about and strolling like me”
