A double-exposure photograph of a set of traffic lights against a bright building has won the Fujifilm Student Awards 2013 title for Nick Linnett.

Nick, who is studying for a Foundation degree in Photography at Leicester College, beat more than 1,200 entries to claim first place.

He said: ‘It’s a building many consider to be an eyesore. However, I wanted to show it in a different way so decided to take some multiple exposures using my trusty Canon.’

Nick, who shot the image using Fujifilm Superia 200 film, said the picture – which he cropped slightly – turned out better than he had hoped.

Judges praised Nick for his technical ability and the ‘striking colours’ in his winning photo.

The theme for this year’s competition was ‘The Colour Of…’ and all images must have been shot using Fujifilm Professional film.

The contest was open to all UK students, not just those studying photography.

Last month, Fuji announced that it had stopped making four more of its films, owing to a lack of demand.

    I am a landscape enthusiast and do not normally like this type of photograph or method, but I think this picture is fantastic! I wish I had taken it.
    Long live film!
