ICI Imagedata competition winners - ICI Imagedata announces winners of 2005/6 Olmec Student Digital Photographer of the Year Awards & Independent on Sunday Reader Awards.
The winners of the Olmec Student Digital Photographer of the Year were presented with their awards at a prestigious ceremony at ICIs headquarters in London, along with winners of the national Independent on Sunday Reader Awards.
Launched in 2002 by ICI Imagedata to promote the creative use of digital photography and showcase the work of up-and-coming talent, the Student Awards are open to students studying photography as part of a college or university course.
Over the years, the competition has produced a wealth of exciting, creative images and this year was no exception with a record number of colleges taking part and an excellent standard of entries across the three competition categories: PEOPLE, PLACES & STILL LIFE.
The overall winner of the 2005/6 Olmec Student Digital Photographer Competition was Katinka Goldberg, a second year student of photography at Edinburgh College of Art, with her black and white portrait Nadia.
Katinka used a Nikon D70 Camera to capture her image. Her ambition is to become a documentary photographer after completing her studies.
The Judges were impressed with the atmosphere, style and emotion generated by the image.
