THEME FESTIVE ESSENCE

World Photographic Forum proudly announces the result of the THEME CONTEST : Festive Essence started  from 26th September to  25th October , 2017. 

The contest is sponsored by Fujilove Magazine - Best magazine for Fuji X users in the world. 

 

The Contest is judged by Qatar-based Polish photographer, educator and journalist       

Mr  Arek Rataj

 

 

Arek Rataj (b. 1983) is a Qatar-based Polish photographer, educator and journalist regularly contributing to APF Magazine and 121 Clicks .
 
'He grew up in a small industrial district in communist Poland under the Soviet Union totalitarianism. He turned 7 years old  when the fall of the Berlin Wall ended 40 years of the Cold War. In midst of this human misery, political hypocrisy, environmental industrial dirt, and ugliness, he became particularly sensitive to all signs of beauty and transcendence.'

From the juror’s desk :
 
 
First off, I would like to thank all participants who entered the contest under the theme "Festive." It was a vibrant journey to go through hundreds of submissions in search of the most captivating photographs. Thanks to you, I feel a stronger fascination with the rich culture of India.
 
I would like to congratulate all those who have been placed in the TOP 20; your images hold power and prove that Indian photographers are one of the most talented artists in the world.
 
In addition to the beautifully composed pictures I had the chance to see, there were also photographs, which were destroyed by software post-production (post-processing). Beware of that! The art of photography is the art of composition, not the art of computer skills.
 
Consequently, the third award goes to Partha Pratim Saha. It is a textbook example of distribution and minimalism.
 
The second award goes to Abdul Hameed‎. It is the only black and white image which found its place in TOP 20. I find it appealing because of its interesting decisive moment and distribution of subjects. 
 
The first award goes to Poonam Nautiyal‎. The frame is filled, the colors are strong, the action is there. A pleasure to look at. 
 
 
Thanks to all the participants.

Congratulations to all          Cheers !!!!
