One more week for Kids Photo Comp

16 June 2014

Forest BoysThere is one week left to get your best kids images in to us for a chance at winning an exquisite Moleskine Photo Book Plus, get your image published in New Zealand’s favourite photography magazine, and have it critiqued by a pro.
You have until 5pm, Sunday, June 22 to submit images to the latest round of D-Photo‘s Kids Photo Comp: email them to [email protected] with the subject ‘Kids Photo Comp’ and be sure to read the terms and conditions below.

Last issue’s winner was Stacey Cavalier, a regular in this competition’s pages. Her beautfiul monochrome image, Forest Boys, was chosen by our esteemed guest judge, wedding and portrait photographer Catherine Cattanach. She says the image immediately grabbed her attention:

I love the unusual composition, which I feel really works — the kids are balanced nicely by the patch of light between the trees at the top of the frame. The expressions are full of personality, these two look like such little characters. I like the way they are not both looking at the camera, as this emphasizes the relationship between them and adds interest.

Technically the image has been well handled, with good separation between subject and background. It’s a simple and strong image that I enjoy coming back to — very well done.

Congratulations also go out to our runners-up, who’s excellent images are displayed below.
