Canon announces winners of ‘Iconic Images’ competition
London, UK, 24 November 2015 – Canon Europe today reveals the 10 finalists and overall winner of its pan-European ‘Iconic Images’ competition. Emanating from over 12,500 entrants across 18 European countries, Matt Doggett from the UK was crowned winner by a panel of internationally acclaimed photographers, including Canon Ambassador Brent Stirton and Getty Images photographer Toby Smith, for his entry “Visionary Changes.” Matt’s striking underwater shot of gannets fishing for food was selected for his technique, creativity and original and interesting interpretation of the brief, a story of change. “When gannets hit the water the shape of their eyes change instantly giving them perfect vision of the fish upon which they prey,” he said.
