Compelling: the judges awarded photographer Ross Hoddinott first prize for his image of a damselfly silhouette

Judge Sue Herdman, editor of the National Trust Magazine, said of the winner's work: We were looking for a winning image that stood out as the most memorable and striking.Almost monochrome in tone, this beautiful silhouette is both intriguing and haunting, with a delicate composition and admirable clarity.
