To celebrate the start of the long-anticipated Guernsey Photography Festival, Festival Sponsor, Mourant has challenged its teams to get creative with an exciting photography competition.

Three winning Team Mourant photographers snapped up special prizes in the leading firm's environment-themed take on this year's Festival theme: Acts of Love and Rebellion. The Mourant competition challenged budding photographers to find scenes in and around Guernsey that reflected this theme within our natural world.

Mourant Guernsey Managing Partner, John Lewis said: "As part of our support of the 10th anniversary edition of the Guernsey Photography Festival and our focus on environmental sustainability, we encouraged people to take a step outside, get creative and share their interpretation of the theme within our local environment. The entries we received were inspired and we're looking forward to the winners' prints taking pride of place in our offices!"

The three winners (pictured L to R above) are Iona Mitchell – Knowledge Lawyer; Alasdair McKenzie - Associate, Finance & Corporate; and Gerie Green – Solutions Analyst. The top winning image titled 'Hostile Takeover' illustrated below, was taken by Alasdair McKenzie.
