British Airways Paralympics Photo Essay

Winner
Mr Mark Pain, The Mail On Sunday

The London Paralympics inspired and amazed a generation of viewers and it also produced some truly amazing moments in sport. From the powerful celebrations when Dave Weir won his four golds, the concentration on Natalia Partyka's face as she prepares to serve, to the exhalation shown by Oscar Pistorius as he crosses the line in the 400m final - all great sporting moments in their own right.
