Launched by online gaming company Mobile Slots earlier this year, the competition asked British office workers to share the view from their desks on Twitter with either the #bestofficeview hashtag or #worstofficeview.

Paul Anthony sent in a stunning shot of Hastings pier in East Sussex, bathed in the orange glow of a summer sunset, while winner Andrew Atterwill captured an autumnal view of a lake and woodland in Bungay, Suffolk.
