Digital Camera competition: Your Mission 100 winners

See the best entries in Digital Camera magazine’s monthly photo competition, Your Mission. The theme for issue 100? ‘Water of Life’.

Each issue, Digital Camera magazine sets a photography challenge in its ‘Your Mission’ section. The monthly challenges are diverse – from straight portraits and landscapes through to more interpretive themes, such as ‘water of life’ and ‘feeling blue’. The best image submitted each issue wins a prize and gets printed in the magazine. Here you’ll find that prize-winning photo, plus a collection of the best images submitted for issue 100’s theme, water of life…

You came up with a wide range of interpretations of the water theme – from colourful close-ups (as in Jeffrey Watson’s 3rd place image of jellyfish, above, captured on a Sony Alpha a350 at 1/30sec) to more abstract compostions. There are 3 pages of shortlisted and winning shots here. The creative overall winner, below, was a firm favourite. Well done, Chris! You can see more of Chris’s work in his PhotoRadar gallery
