Judges selected from more than 300 images on the theme ‘Exploring the changing face of London: people and place’

Mark Lakomcsik won the Open-City 2012 photo competition with his image ‘Elevating Experience’, which the judges praised for its ‘fantastic layering’ and ‘compositional assurance’.

The picture was chosen from more than 300 photographs taken during the Open House event in September, in response to the brief ‘Exploring the changing face of London: people and place.’

The judges included AJ art editor Brad Yendle, Photographers’ Gallery director Brett Rogers, architectural photographers Grant Smith and Dennis Gilbert and founder of Open House London, Victoria Thornton.

J Bayliss was awarded first runner-up position with her photograph ‘Playing in the Drum’, taken during an Open House tour of the Channel 4 building on Horseferry Road.

Second runner-up was Simone Fisher with ‘Rear Window’, which captures the individual worlds of the music rooms in the Barbican, while Studio Octopi’s Chris Romer-Lee’s ‘Stockwell Studios’ was named third runner-up.

‘The winners all fulfilled the brief very well,’ said Yendle. ‘The multiple reflections in the winning photograph show the hustle and bustle of Open House weekend.’
