PRIZE

We have an amazing prize:

PRIZE:  Two night stay (including 3 course dinner on one evening) in the luxurious boutique cliff-top hotel – Vivenda Miranda, Algarve Portugal


It is my favourite small boutique hotel in the Algarve.  Last Saturday night, I had a wonderful meal in this little gem of a hotel overlooking the ocean.  Whoever ends up winning this prize is in for a real treat. 🙂

Our 1st Annual Lawyers’ Photography Competition – 2016

There was a great reaction to our competition last year with lawyers sending us in photos from all around the world.  We had a wonderful JUDGE  – Laurence McMahon (a former lawyer and now a professional commercial photographer based in Dublin).

Laurence had a difficult job deciding on 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in our competition.

The Winner

of our

1st Annual Lawyers’ Photography Competition 

Fiona Keddie, General Counsel at glh.

In the words of our Judge:

Fiona’s photograph taken on a river in Cambodia caught my eye. It  has a painterly feel to it.  Love the muted tones and moody nature which are amplified by the stillness of the water.  I am wondering what is around the corner.


Photo below of our winner, Fiona, receiving her prize which was presented at our General Counsel Summit last November.


You can see more of Fiona’s photographs on the link below:

2nd PLACE

Eleanor Geraghty,  Senior Associate at Hogan Lovells.

According to our Judge:

Eleanor’s photograph of horses on a beach in Donegal, Ireland grabbed my attention.  I like the panoramic crop  which really suited this photo.  Like the feeling of space and the colour of the sand as against the sky.

You can see more of Eleanor’s photos on this link:

3rd PLACE

Michelle Geraghty, Legal Counsel at Afilias plc  (no relation to our 2nd place winner!)

Our Judge said:

Nicely captured.  A lovely summery feel with the blues and greens.  Like the way the focus is on steps with island in background.  Tells a nice story.
