HE 2010 Peregrine Trophy, the Navy’s annual photographic competition, brought together the great and the good – and some Naval photographers whom we quite like as well – to recognise the stunning talent and creativity of this small band of hardworking specialists who highlight the activities of the Service at home and abroad.

THIS section features the work of three Naval phots, but only two are professional. The rather cheerful image to the left was taken by LA(Phot) Gregg Macready on board HMS Ark Royal and netted the RN Life Without Limits Award, for the best

photograph of a member of the Service at work. And we are reliably informed that: “NA(SE) Adam Bland is showing his excitment to be in Glen Mallen on top of Ark’s flightdeck ramp.” Of course. The overhead shot of HMS Cumberland

won for LA(Phot) Steve Johncock the Best Maritime Image Award. And frequent contender Cdr David Burns has grabbed the Amateur Award back once more for his image of HMS Ocean basking in the Northern Lights.

IN this section we have two collections which reflect a selection of the images that won best category awards. Pictures of the Greenwich Painted Hall, the RN rugby team and HMS Dauntless in silver glory won the title of Royal Navy Photographer of the Year 2010 for LA(Phot) Keith Morgan, a relative newcomer to the branch. And just to prove our credentials

here at Navy News, Keith’s images have graced our cover twice in the past 12 months. (Rumour has it that Keith was banned from leaving the office for exciting jobs for several months as a result.) Yet this fledgling Phot still managed

to wrest the title from seasoned campaigners for his portfolio of four Service-related photographs. And last year’s winner LA(Phot) Owen King was awarded the Mark Hipkin Memorial Trophy; he said: “I was so honoured to be awarded this trophy which singles out the photographer who has contributed the most in all respects to this branch. Despite winning the main prize last year – this award means a lot more to me.”

were part of the portfolio that won his unit FRPU East the Peregrine Trophy itself. Some of the winning six prints are shown right: a sailor from HMS Iron Duke in the Bahamas; a sombre shot of boxer Lt Lucy O’Connor preparing for a bout, both by LA(Phot) Simmo Simpson; RMs in mourning by LA(Phot) Caroline Davies; and destroyer HMS Manchester’s homecoming by LA(Phot) Alex Cave.

This same image won Alex the Media Operations Award for the best single news image to have the most impact. And top right, LA(Phot) Billy Bunting of RNAS Yeovilton is winner of the Best Maritime Air Prize for the best photograph of helicopters for this shot inside an 848 NAS Sea King.

And back to Keith, whose pictures
