Thanks to Chris Fowler, General Counsel Technology at BT Group plc, for entering the above photo in our 5th Annual International Lawyers’ Photography Competition.  Chris said:

Hi Colin – here’s an entry for your annual lawyers photo competition – it was taken while snorkelling in Bunaken Island Indonesia last summer. The manager of the hotel ran a scheme to pay the local people for wild turtle eggs (instead of them being sold  for food) and he spends his spare time training them to find deep water before releasing into the wild. It’s a win win for all as it gives the fishermen a revenue stream and helps increase the no’s of young turtles that survive. This picture was taken when he invited my kids and I to snorkel with them as part of their training.

Your Photo

So if you are a lawyer (including trainee lawyer) and interested in entering our competition, I’d love to see you travel photo.  My email is:

colin.carroll@empowermentinternational.com

I look forward to hearing from you.

Take care,

Colin


Prize

For two years running our top prize was a fabulous 2 night stay in the luxury boutique hotel, Vivenda Miranda perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean in the Algarve, Portugal.  Our top prize has yet to be confirmed but I’m hoping we will have another amazing prize this year. 🙂
