Tetley Competition Winner by gdphotography Tetley Competition Winner by gdphotography
Forth Road Bridge, West Lothian - Scotland - December 2003.

This was my winning entry for the 2003 National Tetley Photographic Competition. The image was featured in several catering magazines throughout the country. It shows an Inspector at the top of the Forth Road Bridge's south tower enjoying a cup of Tetley Tea. The competition's slogan was - "A cup of Tetley and you're ready for anything!".

All shot on 35mm, the good old days...



Update : Wow I am honored to be on the top 10 specially selected deviations of the past 9 years! That is brilliant, thanks. :D

NOTE : In response to the post about winning all the tea, I actually won - A Fuji 120 rangefinder camera, 250 rolls of Fuji 120 film and £500 with this image. ...Looking back and seeing now everything has gone digital I think I would have rather had the unlimited tea bags! :)

Is the logo photoshopped in? Also, why is he giving the finger?
