The competition dates back to 1961 and is named after the HMS Peregrine Royal Naval Air Station in Sussex. The award’s primary purpose is to encourage the production of eye-catching images for naval public relations use. It is open to all Royal Navy Photographers, and this year has seen nearly 480 entries from all aspects of naval life; ranging from the operational theatres of Afghanistan, our latest warships patrolling the oceans to capturing people, places, and events around the world often in extraordinary circumstances.

The ‘Peregrine Trophy’ runs annually and comprises 14 professional classes, a student award and 3 amateur categories.
