An Olympus E-PL5 compact system camera is winging its way to club member Mervin Straughan after winning a national competition judged by the camera manufacturer's principal photographer and educator for the UK.

Damian McGillicuddy praised Mervin's image entitled Beach Boys in July's travel-themed contest run in association with Olympus.

He said: "The whole idea of a travel and tourism photograph is to make you want to be where the image was taken, Mervin has conjured up a great image that captures the theme as well as making you want to be there."

The winning photo was taken in Gran Canaria using a Canon Ixus 220HS compact.

Organisers said the competition drew a large volume of entries including "some cracking images."

Damian has been working on Olympus UK’s behalf testing its latest and leading equipment, running courses and shooting the stunning imagery that the manufacturer has been using to advertise the OM-D.

Details of Mervin's win and other Damian McGillicuddy news, competitions and events are available here.
