Breaking the News photography competition – the prize winners!

We’re delighted to announce the winners of the Breaking the News photography competition which invited people to submit photographs that told a story from their area or community.

We had dozens of fantastic entries and you can see them all in our special Breaking the News photography competition scrapbook on Edinburgh Collected.

Our three judges had a difficult decision but after careful deliberation have awarded the following three newsworthy entries as the winners.

1st prize – Fire on Calton Hill by soggybiscuit

This competition was run as part of a wider project in collaboration with the British Library and the Living Knowledge Network of libraries on the theme of Breaking the News.
