Landscape Photo by Dave Derbis

UK’s Ivan Hoo (Portrait), David Bernard of the Czech Republic, (Sport) France’s Alan Laboile (Macro) and Dave Derbis from Germany (Landscape) are the winners of Canon UK’s The Assignment European challenge for amateur photographers.

The Canon UK announcement comes after a climactic head-to-head competition finale in Vienna, against the exciting backdrop of UEFA Euro 2008. The event – held over 4 days – saw four pairs of finalists compete in a series of challenges.

Macro finalists’ skills were tested with a night shoot at Vienna’s Votive Church, while Sports finalists shot a street luge event outside the city. The Portrait finalists tackled a group of ballroom dancers in the gardens of Schonbrunn Palace; Landscape finalists, meanwhile, enjoyed a dramatic aerial shoot from a hot-air balloon.

A total of 43,404 images were submitted and voted on by 192,127 registrants on the competition website. The winning images were judged by Sirio Magnabosco, the resident Photography Master.
