RNLI Photo of the Year 2012 gallery

​The winning image, titled The Calm, which depicts all-weather kit hanging in the crew room at Dunmore East, was taken by lifeboat Crew Member Neville Murphy. Neville has been a volunteer on the crew at Dunmore East for the past decade, but only took up photography this year.

Hot on Neville's heels was runner-up Paul Collins from Abersoch. His photograph was taken on a shout back in September, where the crew arrived on scene to find less than 1m of a boat's bow sticking out of the water. Thankfully, the crew were able to rescue all three casualties to the lifeboat. Once everyone was taken ashore, the lifeboat crew returned to the stricken vessel to make her safe.

Third place was clinched by Jake Clifford, Lifeguard Supervisor for Weymouth and West Dorset. His photograph was taken during a major first aid incident on Weymouth Beach, in which Jake and his fellow lifeguards cleared the landing site for Rescue 106 to take a casualty to hospital.
