The Pursuit of Happiness – Photography competition

July 11, 2008


English National Opera in association with The Photographers Gallery asked people to upload their own images inspired by ENO’s production of Candide around the theme of ‘The Pursuit of Happiness’.

The image above was chosen as our winner.  Photographer Jaynel was inspired by  ‘Make our Garden Grow’ from Leonard Bernstein’s Candide.

“Let dreamers dream
What worlds they please
Those Edens can’t be found.
The sweetest flowers,
The fairest trees
Are grown in solid ground.”

Winner Janel recieves a funky fifties style Diana camera, a year’s membership to The Photographers’ Gallery (London) plus two free tickets to see Candide and a bottle of champagne.

Many thanks to everyone who uploaded a photo!
