Vauxhall Head of Sponsorship, Chris Hornbuckle, said: “The judging panel was tremendously impressed by the stunning quality of the imagery which has been entered.

“All the entrants captured the passion, commitment, intensity and excitement that international football brings and which Vauxhall is delighted to be sponsoring across all four Home Nations.

“Each country has had some great stories to tell throughout 2011 and the sports photographers have clearly captured those storylines and produced a series of fantastic portfolios and individual images.

“Vauxhall is committed to strengthening and developing our relationships with all sections of the media and this competition is an important way in which we can highlight and reward the football photography profession for the excellent work they undertake and which is not always fully recognised by everyone in the game.”
