A PHOTOGRAPHER has won a silver prize for his snap of a sunset in a competition for creative people with learning disabilities.

Lloyd Page, 48, from Bromley, won the silver award for the Through My Eyes category in Mencap's national photography competition Snap!

The competition encouraged people to enter their photographs for the chance to win prizes and have their work displayed at the Proud Camden gallery from June 19.

Out of 1,100 entries, Mr Page's photograph of a sunset entitled Shepherds' Delight impressed judges Rankin, iconic fashion and celebrity photographer; Alex Proud, founder of Proud Galleries in London; and Eamonn McCabe, photographer and former picture editor of the Guardian.

Mr Page said: "This photo was taken with my mum's camera, outside in my back garden. Seeing the sky made me feel about people with learning disabilities who might be in love because I wasn't."

Winning a Fujifilm digital camera, Mr Page is invited to the awards ceremony where he will rub shoulders with celebrity supporters.
