Snap happy pair win with shipshape photos

Two keen photographers snapped up a cash prize each for their pictures of the Tall Ships event, thanks to Clydeport.

The Ocean Terminal operator invited amateur photographers to submit pictures taken during the event, with two cash prizes for the best entries.

Two categories were being reviewed by the judges, hoping to find the best images taken by children under the age of 12 as well as submissions by adults.  

The winner of the junior category was Drew McIntyre, who captured a shot of the Gloria in Greenock to take first prize.

It was a picture of the ships Europa and Sorlandet which caught the judges’ attention in the adult category, won by Billy Keogh from Greenock.

Both winners will receive a cash prize of £250.

Organisers said that a fantastic response to the competition resulted in a high number of contenders for the top places.
 
Andrew Hemphill, General Manager of Greenock Ocean Terminal said “The judges had a very difficult job picking a winner from submissions, many of which were of an exceptionally high standard. It was also really fascinating to see the all the individually different perspectives of the Tall Ships visit to Greenock Ocean Terminal, further highlighting the success of 4 day event. Greenock is the first sight of Scotland which many of the 57,000 cruise visitors who pass through the port per year set eyes upon so it is great to view so many wonderful images taken by members of the public.”
