British Fencing Image of the Year 2018


Congratulations to the category winners of the British Fencing Image of the Year 2018! The judges were impressed with the high standard of entries. Fencing images from all over the UK and beyond were entered for the three categories of Fencing Fun, Inspiration and Teamwork. After scrutinising the images, the final category winners have been decided. The category winners are revealed as part of World Photo Day, August 19th 2018.

Images were submitted via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #BFimage2018. Neil Freeman from Nikon School UK judged the categories, with special input from GB sabre fencer James Honeybone. Nikon School UK previously collaborated with British Fencing and GB fencers James Honeybone and Kate Beardmore in their Nikon School workshop in June 2018, where photographers learned to capture elite fencers in action at the Leon Paul Fencing Centre, London.

The winners are:

Teamwork – ACE photography- for a triumphant celebration of teamwork.
