2017 OPEN AWARDS
Spanish Photographer Jesus M Garcia won the 2017 open photographer of the year award for Nature or Landscape category. Its a photograph of the sun rising over Damian Shan in China.
The light, colors and overall effects of the shot are stunning and it is easy to see why Garcia won.
In addition to that, Garcia also sent in a photograph of Whuzi Hill in China which is beyond impressive.
Garcia also entered a pic from his home country of Spain, capturing a foggy night in Toledo.
The Open Award Winner for Built Environment or Architecture is also a Spanish photographer named Javier de la Torre. He too is an avid photographer in China and took this shot in the city of Shanghai. The color, composition, light, and artwork are all mind-blowing.
2017 AMATEUR AWARDS
British photographer Darren Moore won the Amateur section of the co-option for the Built Environment or architecture category with a snap of the beach huts along the Essex coastline. The pic is black and white, foggy and almost magical in composition.
Meanwhile, Ray Jennings of Australia was another Amateur Award winner in Nature or Landscape category for his photograph showing trees in water, black and white, misty and ethereal.
2017 CURATORS AWARD
Lastly, the Curator’s award went to Nate Merz from the USA. His photograph titled ‘Stranger Things’ is this shot of trees in South Korea.
Above all, Epsom Panoramic Photography Awards is getting better and better each year – and we are already looking forward to the 2018 entries.
