Winners of the Royal Navy Peregrine Trophy Photography Awards

The Royal Navy Peregrine Trophy’s main aspiration is to encourage and inspire wider production of powerful imagery that would represent the Royal Navy and Royal Marine’s operations in media. The role of photography, portraying the work of the Royal Navy has never been more important. The Royal Navy photographers who have captured images of life in the Royal Navy as well as the service’s technical prowess have been honoured at an annual awards ceremony in London. They were “recognised for their talent, dedication and creativity”.
