The competition was judged by:

The Competition itself had more than 550 images entered reflecting every aspect of RAF life.
This has provided the RAF with a unique opportunity to engage with the UK public showing them the broad range of activities and events the RAF is involved in.
The winning images were displayed in many national newspapers and online, across the world meaning the RAF has been promoted worldwide and was only possible due to the quality of the photographers and the effectiveness of their imagery.
The People’s Choice Awards resulted in over 18,000 votes with 6,000 coming from the RAF Museum whereby for the first time we provided tokens for visitors to vote.
The Awards Ceremony was held on Friday 16th September at the RAF Club in Piccadilly, London
