May’s #pictureperfect winner crowned as June competition opens

“An opportune moment” has led Narberth postwoman Anto O’Hara to be crowned our inaugural #pictureperfect winner.

The Workplace-exclusive competition started in May, and sees colleagues posting pictures from their working day. Everyone who uses #pictureperfect on their post is in with a chance of winning an iPad.

A shortlist of five finalists is based on the amount of ‘likes’ received by each image posted during the month. It’s then over to a Workplace public vote. This time, Anto’s shot of a herd of cows watching her in a line from over a hedge took top spot, with 239 votes.

‘I’m delighted I won against some brilliant photos from all of the participants,’ said Anto – a big advocate for Workplace, our new collaboration and communication tool.

‘What a great way to showcase where we all live and work, and I hope the competition encourages others to download the Workplace app and enter.’

West Cornwall operations manager Stuart Sugden’s picture of postwoman Amy at our drones trial on Isle of Scilly came second, with 146 votes, and postman Iain Pead-Jowett’s wild pigs surrounding his van in Yorkshire was third on 77 votes.

‘The photo of the cows was a complete opportune moment that I couldn’t drive past,’ explains Anto. ‘I’ve actually had the photo put on a canvas for a work colleague who has just bought a new house.’
