Capture Hackney, a photography project documenting the transformational time of the borough leading up to 2012, is one of Hackney Council’s activities in their wider 'mapping the change' initiative. Jointly facilitated by experiential photography organisation, Shoot Experience, the competition came to a climax on Thursday with the official opening of the exhibition and prize-giving ceremony at Hackney Museum.

21 photographs were chosen out of 75 entries by a panel of esteemed judges including reggae photographer Dennis Morris (whose exhibition Reggae Rebels is running alongside Capture Hackney).

The lucky winners won wonderful reggae prints by the man himself (on this fact alone this Londonista was gutted that her own selected entry didn't win a prize) along with books and an Olympus SLR camera as first prize. All 21 photographs will go into the Hackney Archives as a lasting memory of this diverse borough.
