THE WINNER OF #AnnaSteinhouseAward Photography Competition
Good morning all!
A very special THANK YOU goes to all of you, who submitted your work for AS Photography Competition themed #AS_MyNewWorld aiming to record combined experiences of people in the UK during and post lockdown. The judges on our panel saw an incredible quality of submissions and a great variety of interpretations of the theme.
It was also great to feel part of such a vast creative community, so thank you all for this.
It was truly difficult to select a winner amongst the incredible quality of the entries.
However, after three days of due deliberation, as promised, the panel is now ready to announce Gilberto Moleiro Papa @gilbertoski from Manchester as the Winner of 1st Prize of the competition. Gilberto's work titled "35 Days of Lockdown' won with the majority of the votes. I am sure you will all join me in congratulating Gilberto in this great achievement.
There were quite a few other works that caught the attention of the judges. Here I would like to name a few Runners-up:
Shona @marlos_marvels from Carshalton, Surrey with her portrait of Marlo
Mert Kece @plankingradish from Edinburgh with his 'Bullet Proof...I Wish I Was'
Bernadette @bernadetteesz from Woolwich with her 'Quarantine Haircut by me' Ornela Aliaj @ornela_aliaj_photography from London with her 'Wearing a Mask' Steve Perkins @_steveperkins_ from Canterbury with his 'Brighton, July'20'
The work of the Winner and the Runners-up is now displayed at the virtual exhibition in online gallery Artavita
A huge THANK YOU to the @Atlasgallery, for offering to display the 1st Prize Winner's framed print. The Atlas Gallery, which is situated in Mayfair, London is one of the foremost galleries worldwide dealing exclusively in photography.
Finally, I would like to thank all our judges for giving their time for this competition. A wholehearted THANK YOU goes to:
