We had so many great entries into this 'Portraiture' competition, it was really difficult for Olympus to choose just one overall winner.

Eventually, though, they settled on richshep's atmospheric image 'Looking for trouble'.

A huge congratulations to richshep, you win £1000 worth of Olympus kit!

The judges over at Olympus said: "Portraits are among the hardest images to judge, especially when the brief is fairly open. There was a wide range of styles and interpretations in this competition and many excellent images. Some tried too hard to stand out, some were well executed but safe! In the end, after due consideration for overall quality, it is about whether you keep wanting to go back and look again. Colour, expression, mood all just work in 'Looking for trouble'. Well done."

Well done to all those that made the shortlist too, there were so many great images that this in itself is a big achievement.

Head over to the competitions page for more chances to win great prizes!
