More than 120 entries were received for the first London Youth Underwater Photography Competition, initiated by Imperial staff members and postgraduate students from the Imperial College Underwater Club.

A variety of prints highlighted specific concepts of photography from portraiture to abstract forms. Judges included David Bellamy, Alex Mustard, Paul Naylor, and Brian and Linda Pitkin. All proceeds raised were donated to the Marine Conservation Society.

Winners chosen from 36 finalists included Alan Ahern who took the runner up prize and first prize in the UK macro category with pictures of limpets on a kelp frond and an adult pike taken in Guildenburg Lake, pictured above, which also won the best in show award.

The runner up in the UK normal/wide angle category was a photograph of a Tompot Blenny fish taken by Emma Kenyon, while the winner was James Clark with an image showing two crabs hiding in the barrel of a gun.
