Laura Fitzpatrick from Lower Morden has been announced as one of the winners of the St Paul’s Cathedral 300th Anniversary Photo Competition. Laura won for her stunning image of the cathedral framed by Anthony Carol sculpture ‘The HSBC Gates’.
The photo competition was launched to celebrate the cathedral’s 300th anniversary and the completion of the £40m 15 year restoration project. Amateur and professional photographers were invited to submit their best exterior shot of the building to www.flickr.com/groups/stpaulslondon
Ten winning images were chosen by the judges from hundreds of entries. The photographs will be displayed in the crypt as part of the digital timeline outside film experience Oculus: an eye into St Paul’s from Thursday 11th August until late 2011.
Photographer Laura Fitzpatrick said:
“I’m thrilled that my picture was chosen as one of the winning entries. I was inspired to take this picture because I liked how the old and new structures entwined together to make a really interesting new image of St Paul's”
Laura has been taking photos for over 10 years…
The judging panel was made up by The Reverend Canon Mark Oakley, Treasurer of St Paul’s Cathedral, photographer Peter Smith and Meryl Doney, curator and member of the cathedral’s Visual Arts Policy Committee.
The overall winner was Michael Murphy from London. He took the title after capturing the judges’ imagination with a stunning photograph of the dome illuminated red to mark World AIDS Day. As part of his prize Michael will also be awarded one of an exclusive edition of 25 glass vases specially made by the Venice-based firm of Salviati to celebrate the 300th anniversary of St Paul’s Cathedral.
