Once again the Lloyd’s building flung open its doors for Open House in September, offering the public the chance to get inside our iconic building. As part of the day, visitors were encouraged to take pictures on their mobile phones and upload them to Instagram so that we could pick a winner.
We received over 200 entries from people who captured Lloyd’s in all its glory and had the hard task of whittling these down to just one winner.
Chosen for his stunning composition and picture of a lesser known entrance to Lloyd’s, Instagrammer Tom Griffiths wins an iPad mini, to commemorate Lloyd’s 325th anniversary.
Griffiths is no stranger to iPads, ironically using them as part of his work at the Great Ormond Street Hospital.
He said: “At work I find technology to support children and young people with little or no speech - I mainly work with children with cerebral palsy who need computers to talk. There are lots of iPads involved.”
Griffiths took the photograph and uploaded via his mobile phone. It captures a view of the glass canopy at the side entrance to the building. He said: “The Lloyd’s building has always intrigued me so I jumped at the chance to see inside. The Open House London weekend is such a brilliant idea, I love poking around in buildings that are normally closed to the public.”
In all, Lloyd’s received over 200 entries to the competition. Just five pictures were shortlisted and then a winner chosen via a staff vote.
The winning shot and shortlisted entries can be seen below. To see all entries search #lloydscomp on Instagram.
