In January of this year, we launched our photography competition. The winner of this competition will have the honour of taking the portrait of our chair of trustees Sir Mark Aspinall. Sir Mark has been invited to have his photograph taken to be placed in the Victoria Law Court in Birmingham.

As Senior Magistrate, Sir Mark is the Chair of the Bench for Birmingham & Solihull. He has over 20 years’ experience in law across banking, financial, media, NHS, Government and the FTSE corporate sector and is currently a judge, as well as a governor of a local authority primary school.

Sir Mark’s portrait will be hanging in Victoria Law Court’s corridor forever, so the winner of this competition will play a part in the history of Birmingham. The oldest image currently hanging in the court currently is over 180 years old!

We were overwhelmed with the number of submissions we received for the competition with nearly 100 photographs to go through. Our top four submissions, including the winning portrait, can be found below. A huge thank you and congratulations to everyone who got involved with the competition and to our winner. We will put out an update once the photograph has been taken and is hanging proudly in the court.
