Thames Lens 2020 Runner Up: Fraser Gray

The Illuminated River Foundation is delighted to have partnered with Thames Festival Trust to introduce a brand new #IlluminatedRiver category in their #ThamesLens photography competition. The competition encourages non-professional photographers to capture unique shots of the River Thames and what it personally means to them with the theme 'My Thames Vision'.

Enter the Illuminated River category with your photos of the artwork at night for the chance to win the following prizes:

  • First prize/ overall winner: £500 cash prize, plus an exclusive dinner cruise x 2 with City Cruises
  • Second prize: Philips Hue Smart lighting system, plus an exclusive dinner cruise x 2 with City Cruises

The competition closes to entries on Friday 28 January 2022.

The winners of the Illuminated River category will be chosen by a panel of representatives from Thames Festival Trust, Port of London Authority, and Sarah Gaventa.

“We’re delighted that Illuminated River has been chosen as the subject of Thames Lens. As London’s new public artwork, the longest in the world, we hope it will inspire budding photographers to use their creativity and fresh eyes to capture and celebrate the artwork, the bridges, and the Thames. We can’t wait to see the results!”

Sarah Gaventa, Director of Illuminated River Foundation
