2015 Overall Winner and Revealing Nature Category Winner: KATH SALIER
Congratulations to Kath Salier, the winner of the 2015 Better Photography Magazine 'Photograph of the Year' award.
Kath's photograph of snow and ice looks like an aerial, but isn't, intriguing and delighting the judges so much that they awarded her first prize and a cash purse of AUS $5000!
Kath is also the Revealing Nature category winner, and as such, she and the other five category winners will take home a sponsor pack comprising a Datacolor Spyder5Express, a Canson Infinity paper pack, a Momento Photobook to the value of $150 and a Wacom Intuos Pro Medium tablet and stylus.
Thanks to our great sponsors for supporting our competition. And thanks also to our esteemed judges Peter Eastway, David Oliver and Tony Hewitt, AIPP Grand Masters of Photography.
This year there were around 1518 entries and the majority of entries earned a Bronze Award or higher. A Bronze Award is given where the judges can see some elements of photographic skill and imagination and want to acknowledge what the entrant has submitted. And given the competition is entered by passionate photographers, it's gratifying to have such a high overall standard.
Each entry also received a short judge comment which will hopefully be of use to entrants for the future.
To view the top 50 entries in each category (they should be ready now, if not they will be very soon), please visit the Better Photography website and click through to the competition site, or you can go there directly at http://competition.betterphotography.com.
