Peregrine trophy winner 2019
FLEET REGIONAL PHOTGRAPHIC UNIT WEST
The Peregrine Trophy is awarded to the Royal Navy photographic section or unit that has submitted the best portfolio of six prints (black and white and/or colour) of service-related subjects captured throughout the year.
This year's winning portfolio features diverse imagery from around the globe. From the Royal Navy's surface fleet to the submarines of the Silent Service, to the elite Royal Marines, the imagery from across the Naval Service impressed the judges to win the top prize.
One of three Teams, the photographers based in Plymouth are ready to deploy around the world at short notice. They are trained to operate at sea, on land and in the air, in extreme conditions from the desert to the arctic.
The role of photography portraying the work of the Royal Navy has never been more important.
This award is designed to encourage the capture of eye-catching, powerful imagery that can be used in traditional and digital media to demonstrate the Naval Service on operations.
