You can now vote for your favourite photo in the RAF’s annual photography competition, sponsored by the Royal Air Forces Association. Judging for the 2019 RAF Photographic Competition recently took place at the RAF Museum Hendon. Over 1,000 photos and 30 videos were entered across the competition’s 13 categories, with the best 9 images being whittled down by 3 industry professional judges, before going head-to-head online to win the ‘Peoples’ Choice’ category.
Voting will close at midnight on September 25, with the winner being announced on October 3 at an awards ceremony at the Bentley Priory Museum, home to Headquarters Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain.
Nick Bunting, Secretary General of the RAF Association – the charity that supports the RAF family, said: “Every one of the hundreds of entries reminds us of the skill, professionalism and sacrifice of our serving personnel, so we’re thrilled to be supporting this competition.” This year’s judges included: freelance photographer Edmond Terakopian, Martin Keene from the Press Association and Jim Hedge, picture editor at The Guardian.
