After a closely fought contest, with 72 Island photographers registered and just under 300 entries, the judges made their final selections and the winners were announced on Saturday 23rd January at Dimbola Museum & Galleries.
The judges, Frank and David, were in complete agreement on the top three place winners and once again Victor Saltmeris won the first place honour with his take on “Indulgence”. Victor again demonstrated his talent having won the previous IWPOY competition in 2013. I’m sure all photographers would like to join us in congratulating Victor on such a great achievement -‘ two in a row’.
Hot on Victor’s heels in second place with ‘Newtown Pano’ was Tim Bondsfield, a previous IWPOY entrant, with Ed Garbett who is new to the competition taking the third spot with ‘The Birdwatcher”.
We will be updating the site soon with news about the Julia Cameron Award and the exhibitions but for now thanks to everyone who took part we look forward to seeing your entries for next year.
