We received hundreds of entries into our 14th annual Thames Lens photography competition, where we asked budding photographers and Instagrammers to respond to the theme River of Life to celebrate the vibrancy and personality of the Thames in our lives.

We sat down with the Port of London Authority and photographer Henry Reichhold, and after hours of judging between streams of stunning photography, we arrived at our winners across the main Photography, Instagram, and Under 18 categories.

Winning photos include a sunbathing seal basking on the Thames foreshore, a misty bridge scene, a leisurely cruise and more…

  • “This year’s Thames Lens entries responded sensitively to the River of Life theme, and showcased some wonderful talent, with great winners in all categories. It was delightful to see so many entries in our new Under 18s category”
    Adrian Evans, Director, Thames Festival Trust
  • “The quality of entries to the Thames Lens competition never ceases to amaze. This year was no exception and with over 250 entries, judging wasn’t a simple task. The winner of our prize though stood out. It shows people drawn to the river banks, perfectly capturing the essence of the Thames Vision and this year’s theme, River of Life”
    Alistair Gale, Director of Corporate Affairs, Port of London Authority
