Prize-winners[edit | edit source]
There were 5 prizes on offer for participants; for best photos, most points and a "judges' choice". All photos uploaded from the event can be found on Wikimedia Commons.
Best photo[edit | edit source]
The three best photographs, as chosen by the judges, were all printed on canvas and presented to the winners.
"Man's Struggle" (an artwork displayed on the side of The Herbert) - Team Mattley
"A masterpiece that captures the mural beautifully and makes it somehow more real, like a Picasso painting come to life."
Allesley Walled Garden - Phil Radbourne
"A quirky, playful photo that has colour, depth and texture. Good composition and it made us smile."
Reconciliation Statue, Coventry Cathedral - Julia
"A photo that shows what you can do when you have a feel for your subject. We felt that this image of the Reconciliation statue in the ruins of Coventry Cathedral successfully captured the spirit of the city."
Most points[edit | edit source]
Every target on the list was given a points value based on its distance from the starting point and how important it was. The prize for most points was won by Team Wormova with a stunning 167 points.
Judges' choice[edit | edit source]
The final prize on offer was the "judges' choice", the winners of which would be given a selection of Wikimedia merchandise. This prize was won by the Nicholson Family. The judges said:
"The Nicholson Family win the judges' choice award. They approached the event as a fun day together as a family, captured some excellent photos and got involved in the event with smiles on their faces - and to us, that's what it's all about."
