Mark Edwards, Red Sands Sea Forts, Thames Estuary, English History winner 2018

Commenting on the awards, judge Dan Snow said: “Last year saw an incredible array of entries covering everything from abandoned second world war sea forts to haunting images from Chernobyl and atmospheric ancient cities consumed by desert sands. We’re now laying down the gauntlet for this year’s awards to challenge entrants to match and even better those astonishing images. There’s no doubt that exploring history all around us truly opens our eyes to the wonders that sit on our doorstep and, above all, we want people to tell the story of the world’s ancient landmarks through their sensational photography.”
