This year’s Photography Annual included a brand new moving image category, which was judged by the CR editorial staff. Winners in this category included Carl Warner’s animated short for Findus, Adam Hinton’s work for the War Child charity, Dean Chalkley’s documentary ‘Young Souls’, which looks at the contemporary Northern Soul scene, and Dave Young’s ‘Everyone has a story’.
Giles Revell’s Art Revealed project, which was used as an ident for the BBC, was awarded Best In Book.
Revell filmed the entire sequence in a two-and-a-half-foot square water tank, which was set up at modelmaking and special effects company Asylum in London. Describing the process, Revell says, “We tested for a week together. We were lookng for the right materials, inks and pigments that don’t mix so much with water.” The shoot itself took place over the course of a day, during which around ten takes were made, some of which were up to twenty minutes long.

Josh Cole also won Best in Book for ‘In Pieces’, which features Rwanda’s street dancers.
Footage for the video was shot over four days of travelling. Cole says, “Sometimes the performers just danced in the street with no music, sometimes we had a car stereo on.”
