Steven Hale (Recipient)

Steven Hale from the University of Birmingham has been named overall winner of the #TechniciansMakeitHappen competition. The winning image captures a sunrise over the world-famous Mt Wilson Observatory in Los Angeles. The competition was launched in 2016 by The Gatsby Foundation to encourage more young people to consider a career as a technician, as over 70,000 roles go unfilled each year in the UK. More than 300 photos were entered into the competition, showcasing the amazing things technicians build, make and create – from space equipment to sports kit, concerts and cars.
