DISCOVER THE HIDDEN DETAILS OF THE ORNC

The Old Royal Naval College has announced the winners of its first Flickr photography competition, Hidden Details of the ORNC

The competition, which launched in October, received hundreds of entries, which were judged by members of the Aperture Woolwich Photographic Society and the University of Greenwich Photography Society.

The competition’s aim was to encourage our 1.8 million visitors to engage with the ORNC in new ways and to discover new, unseen aspects of the site. The resulting exhibition, Hidden Details of the ORNC, hosted at the Discover Greenwich Visitor Centre from 1 April 2015, will feature a selection of the images from Flickr with the aim of encouraging more visitors to use Flickr to share their fantastic images.

All winners and runners up received a pair of tickets to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at Natural History Museum, and a printed book of the winning photographs.
