This is the third year in a row that I have entered the British Army Photography Competition and I managed to bag 1st prize in the Portrait and Best Overall PR Image categories with my 'Army Boxer' image!

 

I have now won the portrait award two years running after just pipping Rupert Frere to the prize.

 

It's an honour to have the opportunity to be able to enter the competition and I feel privileged to have won a prize after competing against some of the most dedicated photographers I know.

Here is the winning Image.
