OPEN CALL Awards October 2017


Finalists

First Prize: Evelyn Bencicova

“It seems like an authentic moment. It is subtle and even tender. It is an image that makes me ask questions: what is she looking at? Is she waiting for an interview? Perhaps it is an audition and she is studying her lines? I like images that go beyond the video game of light and color play.”
– Christopher Anderson

Second Prize: Merethe Wessel-Berg

“Nicely seen and there is enough mystery to elevate the image above an easy graphic game. I normally prefer something more human than graphic design. But this image has enough of a spark of energy to make it work for me.” – Christopher Anderson

Honorary Mention: Kanrapee Chokpaiboon

“A perfectly sized street scene captured with a bewildering simplicity. We discover here all the beauty that one can come across out on the streets. The delicate position of the hidden character’s hand paired with the soft colour glow elevates the image to a pur and gentle moment of urban poetry.” – The Independent Photographer Editors
