Young sports snapper
Charlie's winning photo

The BBC Sport Young Photographer of the Year has been chosen... and the winner is 15-year-old Charlie from Worthing.

Charlie's picture of a mountain biker in action impressed our panel of judges, headed by BBC designer and photographer Catharine Green.

She said: "The photo captures the speed and movement of the rider.

"The short depth of field produces a strong image, throwing the background out of focus.

"That is a very difficult art to master at such a young age."

Charlie will now get to spend time snapping at Wimbledon in the company of a professional sports photographer.

The 15-year-old already receives useful advice from dad Alan, who is a professional photographer.

And he plans on studying photography at college after finishing his GCSEs and hopes to follow in the footsteps of his father.
