Creative communications agency BergHind Joseph has announced the winner and runners up in its annual photographic competition, for which this year's theme was 'leadership'.

Balogh Zoltan's 'Pyramid'

Balogh Zoltan, from Hungary, took first place from more than one hundred entries with his ‘Pyramid’ image. Second place went to David Shaw for his image ‘Palestinians gather on a roof’, and Susan Furber took third with her image ‘Determination’. Zoltan takes away a prize of £500 photography vouchers and a year of portfolio mentoring sessions whilst Shaw has won £250 of vouchers, and Furber £100.

The judging panel included Margaret Clarke, picture editor of The Times2; Andy Wilson, professional photographer; Michael Hirschl, project director and co-creative director at BergHind Joseph; and Stuart Littlewood, designer.

Michael Hirschl said of the competition: “We have been overwhelmed by the quality of the entries, which have come in from across the world. We wanted to create an international competition that celebrates the importance of photography in communicating a message, and thanks to everyone who has participated, we have achieved our objective. Choosing a winner has proved to be exceptionally challenging and there was a great deal of discussion as we went through all the entries. Ultimately though, Balogh’s submission was a clear winner.”

Ian Brownhill, BergHind Joseph’s managing director, added: “As an agency that helps ambitious businesses with an international outlook to build stronger reputations, the photographic competition is an excellent platform for us. Businesses need to show leadership in the way they communicate with staff, customers and stakeholders and we see that imagery plays an important role in that and that is why we developed the competition. I’m very grateful to Margaret and Andy for agreeing to be judges. Margaret sees hundreds of pictures every week, and knows what images capture a viewer’s imagination. Her input has been invaluable. Andy earns his living from photography, and his professional judgement is highly regarded too. We are already planning for next year’s competition and hope to see again some great pictures from across the world.”
