Shard Lights Competition Winners

The Shard announces the winners of the first #ShardLights photography competition.

Throughout December, Shard Lights illuminated the London skyline from dusk til dawn with an array of colours and visual effects. 

As one of the most photographed landmarks in London, The Shard held a photography competition inviting professional and amateur photographers of all ages to capture the 2017 display. Over 1,400 entries were judged by REM employees and professional photographer and influencer Michael Tomas (@LondonViewPoints). 

“It has been fantastic to see such high quality and creative entries. Our winners captured unique shots of Shard Lights which highlighted the essence of the festive display. Congratulations to all those who participated.”
Michael Baker
Chief Executive Officer, REM

“The number of beautiful submissions exceeded my expectations. London offers a lot of places that can be cleverly mixed into a great composition to create multiple layers of interest, and I was mostly looking for strong composition to make Shard Lights stand out.”
