A PHOTO taken with a smartphone has won first prize at this year’s Our Gibraltar photographic exhibition.

Self-confessed Instagram addict Karina Sanchez said she took the photo named The Hall on her phone on her lunch break, and never in a million years thought she would enter it into a competition.

“It’s just a random photo I took on my lunch break one afternoon and what attracted me to that scene was the gothic atmosphere. I enjoy that kind of photography,” she said.  

Karina’s photo, along with second prize winner David Fothergill’s Catalan Cottages 2 and third prize winner Paul Lawford’s Celebrate Between the Flags is on display on weekdays from 9.30 in the morning to 9.30 in the evening, until Friday September 8 at the John Mackintosh Hall.
