The winners of the PLOY (Public Life In the Olympic Year) competition have been chosen.
The competition brief was to capture images of the way people interact and engage with public spaces.
In first place, winning a Leica D-Lux 5 digital camera, was fpmoss with the image ‘Stand in a circle, trace your feet with chalk and jump, hop and skip to the next foot prints. Adult fun’.
Judge Sarah Gaventa explains, “It was the capturing of sheer spontaneous fun that attracted us to the image - they are having so much fun you wish you could join them. It captures a great moment as grown-ups act like kids, jumping in the chalk footsteps. It utilises the lake side of the Barbican - a space that lends itself rather austere to many different incarnations - and is just plain fun.”
In second place, winning a Lomo Diana Deluxe Kit was idealyc, with 'Holding a meeting in Chance Street, Shoreditch', while in third place and winning a Lomo 110 Camera Fisheye-baby is Monika Mukherjee.
