– Theme: Black & White / Competition Judge: Bastiaan Woudt
Congratulations to Avarino Caracò who’s image won the competition!
We are delighted to present the images of 10 visual artists whose work is well worthy of exposure:
1ST PRIZE: Avarino Caracò
“Very strong portrait, with lots of dynamic and great composition. The lower angle of the camera gives the boy a heroic, confident look which compliments the story about him trying to be a musician. Great choice to have him not look at the viewer. The photographer did a great job combining all these technical elements with the story. Absolute winner.” – Bastiaan Woudt
2ND PRIZE: Gil Bartz
“Great composition! – I love the way the lines pull you into the image, towards the man on the end of the dock. I’m really curious about what the subject sees in the water, it gives this image an unanswered question.” – Bastiaan Woudt
3RD PRIZE: Caff Adeus
“Like an abstract sculpture bathed in soft light, the body presented in this image gives us the same feeling of curiosity one feels when entering a museum. Blurring the lines between fine art, portraiture and fashion photography it is also unclear what this form represents, perhaps conveying a message of suffering or pain, but likewise hinting towards redemption and afterlife. Ultimately the conceptual composition reminds us that the body is a complex vehicle for all kinds of emotions and messages, narrated succinctly through the masterful use of a limited monochrome palette.” – The Independent Photographer Editors
LANDSCAPE Deadline: 30 April 2020
When taking a picture of a landscape, just like in a portrait or a scene, photographers attempt to tell a story.
From compelling urban scenes to minimalist pulls towards the earth: this month we want to discover and celebrate all the beauty and joy that landscapes can provide.
All approaches are valid and we want to see as many different styles and compositions as possible!
1st Prize: $1000 · 2nd Prize: $600 · 3rd Prize: $400
