International Garden Photographer of the Year Still Life Project winners announced

WINNERS have been revealed for the Still Life Project section of International Garden Photographer of the Year. The project ran for two months, with winning images coming from the UK, New Zealand, USA, the Netherlands and Italy. The overall winner of the category is New Zealand based professional photographer Simon Schollum, for his image depicting a cross-section of a pomegranate.
Speaking about the photograph, judges said, ‘Simon’s still-life composition has been crafted with expert care and precision – every element has a sense of belonging. Colours and detail exude from every corner of the image and the pomegranate shines in centre-frame, each seed sparkling like new-born precious stones.’ Simon receives £500 and his image will be published in the IGPOTY 11 book, and will also feature in the exhibition taking place at Kew Gardens in February 2018.

Cámaras de montaña

Desde hace tres años, se celebra un certamen que premia, a partes iguales, la complicada proeza de escalar altas montañas, así como hacerlo armado no solo de los complementos necesarios y la energía a tope de carga, sino también en compañía de nuestra inseparable cámara de fotos. Y es que en este tipo de imágenes no solo hay que saber plasmar el momento justo –que ya es arduo complicado-, sino también hacerlo en contra de duras inclemencias meteorológicas, difíciles y largas caminatas, y todo tipo de circunstancias que pueden sorprendernos kilómetros arriba. En esta ocasión, han sido 300 los valientes participantes procedentes de 56 países, los que han presentado más 800 imágenes a concurso. Con estas cifras de participación, el concurso organizado por el Club Vasco de Camping Elkartea se consolida como concurso internacional y de calidad, lo que también se justifica por las fantásticas imágenes presentadas.
