Congratulations to the RAF Marham Photographers!
The RAF Photographic Competition winners were announced on Monday 12th September, and the team from Marham did fantastically well!
The competition is an annual event in which all photographic sections and staffs compete in a number of categories including portrait, technical and equipment. This year there were over 1,100 entries and the judges were unanimous in their appreciation of the very high standard, quality and diversity reflecting the range of tasks that the RAF carries out at home, overseas and on operations.
RAF Marham photo section won the RAF Photographic section of the year, the winning portfolio of 6 images featured images from Afghanistan, and Op ELLAMY along side images from around the station, this category aims to show the full range of activities undertaken at a particular station. SAC Rich Dudley of Marham also won the Mallet Student Trophy which is presented to the best new tradesman; he also won the technical photography category with Marham also picking up 2nd and 3rd places SAC Chris Hill and SAC Si Armstrong respectively, a clean sweep the first time this has happened in the competition. Technical photography both in situ and in the studio is an important service offered by the photo section directly supporting all engineering carried out at Marham.
Cpl Kryssy Lees was 2nd in the Portrait category and 3rd in the sports section, and Cpl Nik Howe was 3rd in the Operational Experience section.
The Photo section staff have been invited to an awards presentation in October, where the Chief of the Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton will present the prizes to the winners.
