The heart, and what it means to me

Service Tunnel, Gillian Hayes. "This reminded me of the role of our heart, which also works endlessly and faithfully away in our bodies without rest to keep everything in check."
Bangor Pier, Nick Board. "I hope it captures a little of the good health and sheer joie de vivre enjoyed by the young, something all of us should, and could, carry through life."
The Stage, Mathew Town. "To me heart is all about having the courage to face anything. I have tried to represent it by showing where people perform; having the courage to show people you can do it."
Moen Lanke, James Morgan. "In this portrait of Moen Lanke, a sea nomad from Indonesia, the faded red of his handmade goggles represents to me the fading hope that he keeps in his heart as he watches his culture and tradition disappearing around him."
Student, highly commended
The Storm, Daniel Lilley. "I was a big fan of wrestling as a child and always felt that, however strange the sport, it was great entertainment and brought smiles to anybody who watched."
Adult, highly commended
Paperdolls, Gillian Hayes. "Fresh-faced, youthful and in love, this image symbolises and celebrates everything which is wonderful in life, the special feeling of having a connection and closeness to someone."
