The Guardian Monthly Travel Photo Competition – March 2018 Winners

Here are the March 2018’s winners of the Guardian’s Monthly Readers’ Travel Photography competition which attracts thousands of entries every year. This month grand-winner is photographer Michael Sutherland who captured the ‘Beast from the East’ whipping through the beautiful red-brick Holborn Bars building on Chancery Lane, London. The geometry of the reflected arch, windows, and trees contrasts with the dynamism of the people and falling snow. You can enter the April competition by following the link below.

Michael Sutherland, winner – The Beast from the East whipping through the beautiful red-brick Holborn Bars building on Chancery Lane, London. Gives me the chills just looking back at this. MICK RYAN, JUDGE: There were some very strong entries this month, but for me this image was a shoulder above the runners-up. It’s a dynamic image – it looks like the photographer saw his chance and took the shot, and despite the weather and moving people it is perfectly composed and exposed. The geometry of the reflected arch, windows, and trees contrasts with the dynamism of the people and falling snow.

David Young – This statue of King Haakon VII of Norway was silhouetted by a street light and it was snowing as I came out of the 18th-century Vardøhus fortress on the north coast of Norway. The fortress saw action in the second world war, when Haakon led the Norwegians in their resistance to the German invasion.

Thomas Curtis – An Afgan bride in Los Angeles applying the finishing touches to her outfit and makeup for her traditional wedding. She and I were alone in the room as I took this, capturing an intimate moment.

Warren Price, runner-up – An eagle owl in a Slovakian forest. I wanted to capture the bird’s intense stare and found that the picture worked more effectively with the owl half hidden by its natural camouflage. It’s one of those rare moments where everything came together. MICK RYAN, JUDGE: The conventional wisdom for wildlife photography is to try and get your subject showing two eyes. When this isn’t possible, there are various ways you can make an image work and this is one way. A beguiling image made even more powerful by the narrow depth of field.
