Last Year’s Photo Competition Winner Toby Hawkes

My involvement in the GDIF 2014 all happened by chance. Having moved to London from New Zealand two months earlier, my wife and I decided to spend a Friday evening in Greenwich, not realising the festival was on.

As we were looking out over the Thames we saw a performance by the Cutty Sark, then realised what was going on. After eagerly reading the programme we quickly decided what we would be doing that weekend!Muare was spotted and we knew we couldn’t miss it. Without realising we ended up sitting in one of the best spots we could have, which lead to the chance taking of my prize winning photograph.

The rest of the weekend was spent enjoying the sunshine, performances and atmosphere in Greenwich, and we knew it would be a highlight of 2015 as well.
