Competition judged by London office’s next artist in residence, Rachel Louise Brown.

Pinsent Masons' Art Committee has announced the winners of its annual photography competition, which is open to all of the firm's partners and staff. This year's competition, themed 'togetherness', attracted over 150 entries from Pinsent Masons' people around the world.

Photographic artist Rachel Louise Brown, who will also be Pinsent Masons' next artist in residence at their London Crown Place headquarters, judged the competition, selecting the first, second and third place entries.

Chris Regan, Solicitor in the firm's Leeds office, won the competition with his shot of a pair of juvenile condors in Peru, entitled ‘Together at rest’. Shanghai-based Partner Liu Wei, who submitted his photograph – ‘Hand in hand, heart in heart‘ – of Naxi people under the Jade-dragon snow mountain in Lijiang, Yunan, was awarded second place. In third place was Richard Laudy, Partner in the firm's London office, with his intimate photograph, ‘Grandad and Grandson’, taken during his travels through Vinales, Cuba.

There was also a prize for the most popular photograph, as voted by Pinsent Masons' people. Kay Auld, Events Executive in the firm's Glasgow office, took the prize for her picture entitled ‘Happily ever after’ , which showed her and her wife dancing down a tree-lined avenue after their wedding.

Partner David Isaac, who heads up Pinsent Masons' Art Committee, said: "I'm delighted with the volume and standard of entries we received in this year's competition. People from all of our offices around the world took part, submitting their work and voting on our intranet. It's also fantastic to see that the most popular photograph voted by our people was Kay's photograph of her wedding – it's a great reflection of our 'One Pinsent Masons' spirit and attitude to diversity in the workplace."
