Jason Sawyers is the winner of the 2013 JPS Night Lights Photo Competition held last month. The winning entry, shot at the Spanish Town roundabout in St Catherine, captured the top spot among 400 entries from professional and amateur photographers across Jamaica.

The photo captured light trails of vehicles and street lights, creating a multicoloured display of beams. The photographer won for himself a Samsung Galaxy Tablet. While Sawyers' entry was selected by a panel of judges, Jouvaughnie Byfield's piece was selected as the top entry for the 'Public Vote' category. He won a $10,000 gift voucher for the JPS eStore.

The winning image best captured the spirit of the competition and was technically excellent, but there were a number of other finalists in the competition who submitted outstanding work. These included Darrick Foster, Karl Lumsden, Wade Barrett, Miguel Garel, Tara Daye, Gerald Gentles, Jon Thompson, Camille Barrett, Chris-Ann Nunes, Daniel Francis, Brian McCalla, Taj-Marie Hassock, Naomi Redway and Alexander Wong.

The full gallery of winners and finalists is available on JPS's Facebook (www.facebook.com/myjpsonline) and also on the company's website - www.jpsco.com. A limited-edition 2014 calendar will be published to showcase the outstanding JPS Night Lights entries from across Jamaica.
