2014 Print Competition – Top images
Our top images (generally scored a 9 or 10) from the Set subject and Open sections from each competition are presented here. You can also see some of the top Digital images from each section – check out the Top Digitals page
There are also a few Editor’s Choice images – the benefits of being the web master! 😉
Peruse and enjoy the best images from our competitions – judged by SAPF and non-SAPF judges (and some by the web master).
Please hover your mouse over the image to see the title and photographer – then click the image to see it full size.
The significant subject must obviously be a found object – sea shell, fossil, cans in the street, an old letter – you name it. But the “found” nature must be obvious.
The colour purple must feature significantly in the image. It might not be the majority of the image area, but it must be a clear focal point.
From phone “selfies” to studio portraits – as long as you are the photographer and the subject it’s in!
This image must elicit and emotional response. The view must be tempted to say “Oh! That’s disgusting!” or “That’s disgraceful” – even “Yuck”
The annual duel – this time it’s at their place
This image should portray a scene from a well known film. The image need not be a faithful replica of an actual scene but must clearly portray the context of the film.
The only other set subject print
An image of the countryside, inland or coastal, with or without evidence of man.
Alberto Giurelli’s Morning Fog in the Hills is unavailable for display.
Alberto Giurelli’s Grey and Beyond and Venice Reflections and Ray Goulter’s Woolshed – Morning were among the highest scoring Landscape images but are unavailable for display.
The dominant/significant (maybe not the largest) subject must obviously be in motion. Subject blurred, background sharp or vice versa. Water drops frozen in flight (from the context) are obviously in motion.
