Winners of a competition for budding photographers will see their work go on display on the walls of Whipps Cross Hospital next month.

The competition, launched to celebrate the centenary of the Leytonstone hospital, will see 12 “highly commended” photographs exhibited from Friday November 17.

Winners were judged by Jimmy Lee, a local photographer who chose a shortlist of the best images, and Leytonstone-born celebrity photographer, David Bailey, who selected the winning picture.

The overall winner was Beverly Springer, from Walthamstow, for her photograph of her son in front of wall art in Wood Street.

The second place position was tied between Eric Kind’s image of Highams Park station signal box in the snow and Robin Ek’s photo of a woman at Walthamstow Market.

Waltham Forest Council leader, Cllr Clare Coghill, said: “This was a great way of celebrating both the centenary of the hospital and the diversity of Waltham Forest.

“Whipps Cross Hospital is a vital part of the borough and the range of entries and enthusiasm shows that it has a special place in people’s lives.”

The competition was sponsored by and Leyton Orient Football Club, both of which contributed prizes.

The top prize was a set of return flights to Madeira, and the runner up prize was a voucher for four match tickets at Leyton Orient.
