It's time to reveal the winners and runners-up in the Vanguard 'Lockdown' competition that ran throughout May. 

We were very impressed with your creativity and the variety of images you were able to take during lockdown and we hope that photography is still offering you some form of escape from the hard times we're currently experiencing.

After browsing through your images and with some careful deliberation here are the images that have won:


1st prize - £200 voucher: MAK2 - Lone man on beach

Vanguard 1st place


We love the simplicity of this image and how well it sums up how a lot of us feel at the moment. The panoramic style is used well to add a sense of infinity to the photo and the dull sky and vast beach. The lone walker clearly stands out in the scene despite wearing fairly muted clothing thanks to his dark trousers on the light beach and his light shirt lining up nicely with the dark, moody sea behind.


2nd prize - £100 voucher: Redten10 - Cake pops

cake pops


We loved the creativity and vibrancy of this photo. In a time when we could all do with some cheering up, what could be batter than cake in bright and happy colours? The image brought a smile to our faces and the positioning and decoration has been well thought out making it super pleasing to look at. 


3rd prize - £50 voucher: Alfie_P - Socially distanced VE day scene

Socially distanced VE day


This photo is great documentary photography and will help us remember this time when things are a little more back to normal. The colourful bunting really makes the scene pop and it really captures the mood of the nation on VE day - a celebration taking place in very exceptional circumstances. 

We'll be in touch by email about your vouchers.


10 small Alta Battery Case winners

There were also 10 runner-up prizes of a small Alta Battery Case up for grabs, so a huge well done goes to these 10 members:
