Thank you to everyone who shared their favourite photos from 2016 and associated memories with us.
We received some fantastic and very diverse, photographs/memories which made judging especially hard. However when we re-visited the original brief 'Your favourite photo from 2016 – the picture (the memory) that you would most hate to lose!' there really could be only one winner...
CONGRATULATIONS to Becky Wiltshire from Lincolnshire in the UK and THANK YOU for sharing your beautiful photograph and story with us:
This photo was taken by myself of my 8 month old daughter meeting her great grandfather for the first time.
'My grandad is in residential care and suffers with dementia...being a military family we live over 3 hours away from home so it can be hard to get back to see family.
Thankfully the day this photo was taken my grandad was is a semi good mood, he was mesmerised by his newest great granddaughter and she was by him too. They sat and looked at each other for the longest time, it was the calmest his carers had ever seen him....there's a certain quality that babies bring out in everyone I suppose.
I turned this image into black and white as I felt it was more striking.'
Becky has won a £100 Amazon.co.uk gift card, 32GB SafeToGo encrypted USB plus 10% off Data Resus photo or file recovery software.
