Anyway they announced the winner – not sure if it’s public knowledge so I won’t give it away here, but I’ll just say that they got the call in airport as they were flying to
I spent most of today at Getty’s London HQ (and will be spending most of tomorrow) scanning, colour correcting and captioning the winning images. I also got to have a coffee and a chat (and another chance to show work) to Aidan which was an added bonus.

The Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks on a visit to Kings College London where he gave a talk on religious education for a society diversity. 12/06/2007. Amazing chap to listen to, seems to have very sensible moderate views with a lot of time and respect for people of all beliefs, but also an incredibly passionate speaker, someone I've always had respect for. Here he was chatting to the Dean of King's College London who was just finishing telling a joke (hence the gesticulation!)

Good old 'use of reasonable force'....hmmm
These guys were taking part in a peaceful sit down protest, blocking a road around Heiligendamm, but the police moved in when the group was still small (presumably to stop it growing). The German police were pretty efficient...which I guess is what you'd expect.
So these are some of the pics I took during the protests at G8 this year that was held in

So I mangaged to return from G8 in one piece...just about. Very interesting to cover and plenty of tales to tell. Went with my good friend David Azia who was working for WPN and met up with some great photographers out there, including some hilarious Dutch guys whom we spent a lot of time with-the camaraderie at these things make it all worthwhile. I did a set of portraits such as this one and they can be seen on my flickr account (which you can get to with the links on the right of this blog or just by clicking the picture). But also obviously shot the action and the riots which if you've been following the news you will know they were....lets just say quite 'fiesty'. I will posting those up when I get a bit more time, but for the moment I have a full weekend of shoots ahead of me.
