And the Winner Is …

May 25th, 2011

Congratulations to Rafal Maleszyk whose photograph “Sunflower’s Army” wins the Camera Obscura Journal Photography Competition for the Summer-Fall 2011 issue. Kalliope Amorphous wins for the amateur category with her haunting image “The Bottom of the Sea.” The editor’s choice award goes to Bonnie Jones for her series “He Took the Butter” in the professional category and Hugh Jones gets the amateur editor’s choice award for “Traces, Grand Canyon.”

There were many standouts including Chan Kwok Hung’s “Harvest Day” and Svetlana Batura’s “Mental Equilibrium,” which gave the judges a dilemma, one that I hope they will have again in the future. Matt Walford’s intriguing construction “Library Sentinel” will land on the cover.

Thank you to our judges Joel Grimes, Carl Caylor and Carol Andrews Jensen for your commitment to our endeavor in support of professional and amateur photographers around the world.

A complete list of finalists can be found here Results.

As always, thanks for all the enthusiasm and support.

The Summer-Fall issue of Camera Obscura Journal will hit bookstores by July 1. See the contributors.
