Judges Writeup



July's competition results are announced...

The Essence of Childhood was the theme, kindly sponsored and judged by Annabel Williams Contemporary Training and yet again you have amazed and inspired the judges. Drum roll please...the winners are...

First Place
Ian Davies (Digipix76) – Rocks For Goalposts
I have recently returned from a photographic exhibition at the Tate Modern and  “Rocks For Goalposts” would have sat comfortably with many of the images I saw at the exhibition. Images like this need to be celebrated. The tonal quality of the image inspired me and had the strength to capture my attention. The image has a pure strength and will certainly mark time, as many of the photographs had in the Tate.

Second Place
Robert Zabukovec (RobertZ) - Way to go
The depth of field in this image leads your eye to the little girl, her private thoughts and the space she quietly fills. From the colour and composition through to the texture of the sand, this image is timeless and a piece of art.

Third Place
Jennifer Holland-Lloyd (Jeniferhl) - Issy
This image has everything an image should have of a child, everything about this image works. The cropping and how the picture unfolds in the frame is magical. This is one of those images that appears as a gift in the middle of a shoot. Well seen and captured, many would have missed the moment.

Congratulations everyone and don't forget to enter the August competition here.
