Reporter 458, 6 November 2000

Picture sweeps board

Materials photographer David Horner’s first prize in the Novartis and Daily Telegraph ‘Visions of Science’ cvompetition was the unanimous choice of a distinguished panel of judges, University Chancellor Lord Bragg has revealed. The winning image (Reporter 457) showed a selection of hi-tech ceramics arranged to resemble a plate of food.

Presenting the prizes at the Royal Society, Lord Bragg said many of the entries were worthy of being hung in the Tate or Haywood galleries and were better than the Turner Prize finalists.

Judges included the Royal Society’s president, Sir Aaron Klug, broadcaster Professor Susan Greenfield, and photography experts from the Daily Telegraph and Kodak. Mr Horner won a £4,000 digital camera for his success in the competition’s professional category.
