The ball took place on 1 August 2009 and was largely organised by the staff at the Institute of Continuing Education and Madingley Hall - both part of the University of Cambridge. The ball was in aid of Arthur Rank Hospice and was the first charity ball we had ran in aid of them. Over 300 guests were wined and dined and close to £10,000 was raised.

It soon became apparent, on looking at all the photographs sent in, that summer in Cambridge impressed itself in quite different ways on our students. As a consequence, we received a great diversity of entries – all with individual merit. This made judging the competition even more difficult, so we put it out to the vote with the team and the results are: WINNER Eun Jung Kim Republic of Korea RUNNERS-UP Valissa Hicks United States of America Laurence Ghier France
