Nicola Chippendale, Halifax
Our Managing Director David Bracey said of the winning photograph: “Nicola’s photo demonstrates photographic skill, while allowing the natural beauty of City Park water feature to shine through. With the iconic shape of the Alhambra Theatre poking through in the background and the pure youthful energy of the girl in the front, there is no denying: this is Bradford.”
Nicola has won a Canon EOS Academy photography course in York, paid for by The Fountain Workshop. Her photograph will also be put forward for consideration for the overall prize – to have her photograph printed on the side of The Fountain Workshop maintenance vans for the following year.
Stephen Garnett, Bradford

Each of the three winners have won a Fountain Workshop water-themed merchandise pack. Each pack contains an umbrella, a swimming bag, a beach towel, a mug, a USB stick, and a polo shirt.
Bradford Council also generously offered the winner and both runners-up a tour of the Bradford Mirror Pool plant room with City Manager Jonny Noble. Below are some of the photos Nicola and Stephen took while on the tour. Stephen even modeled his new polo shirt!
