Last month's EOS 1wall challenge saw a unanimous winner for both the Judge’s Award and the People’s Choice Award.
Jo Ward’s image, ‘Under Great-Gran’, was the undisputed favourite for everyone, as it clearly fits the brief to a tee, stirring that sense of trust felt only between close relatives.
Judge Christopher Island said; “For me this image was a standout. Two subjects, worlds apart, drawn together by the simple act of taking a drink (each in their own unique way!). The theme of trust is delicately treated. She trusts her great grandfather and he trusts his beer. I love images like this that manage to focus on common human traits. I can’t tell whether this is staged or candid which makes it even more remarkable. Beautiful subtle tones, perfect lighting, not too much to retouch.”
Jo captures the essence of the image with the description “Great-Grandpa and Great-Granddaughter enjoying a moment”.
It is now your turn to try the EOS 1wall challenges - you may have also noticed that there’s been a change to the EOS 1wall competitions. We have decided to make them bimonthly so now you have more time to capture that perfect shot!
So for April’s challenge, ‘A sense of place’, you have until midnight 5th May 2011 to upload your photos, and the winner will be announced on 1st June 2011.
This month’s challenge is being judged by Daniel Eastwood. Daniel said, “the brief relates to creating a connection with your environment. It's about capturing an image that conveys a feeling or evokes an emotion about that location”.
Daniel’s last words of advice, “remember: shoot something new. Don't pull out anything you have shot before. Take the brief on, challenge yourself and create a connection”.
So get creative, challenge yourself, and start snapping!
