Cadet category winner: Cadet Sgt Ethan Mathieson, Brooke Weston Trust CCF
The winning image shows Cadet LCpl Zac Cresswell during an adventure training package on Helvellyn in the Lake District.
Ethan said: “Photography is a hobby of mine and so I had been taking photos of our trips for a montage of all the cadet experiences we have taken part in so I have a whole collection of photos and videos. I took this particular photo as it summed up exactly what cadets is all about: fun, ambition and adventure training. I was absolutely shocked as I didn’t think I would win so I was ecstatic when I first heard the news and couldn’t sit still! I am hoping to put the vouchers towards the purchase of a 1300D Canon camera.”
Capt Matt Isherwood, Contingent Commander of the Brooke Weston Trust CCF said: “We are delighted for Sgt Mathieson. He always plays a full and active part in all CCF tasks and the expedition to Helvellyn was just one of the adventurous activities that our cadets have enjoyed. It is gratifying that this shot has been selected as exemplifying the spirit of the CCF, which allows cadets nationwide to enjoy teamwork, training and adventure activities in a range of locations.”
