Announcing the Winners of the Action & Adventure Photography Contest

 

Congratulations to the winners of May's Action & Adventure Photography Contest!

 

Action & Adventure Photography Contest Winners

Grand Prize Winner, selected by guest judge Dan Bailey (professional Alaska-based photographer and author of Outdoor Action and Adventure Photography)

Prize: GoPro Hero4 Silver
Photographer: Tm J
"Wave Rider 10"

from Dan Bailey: "This wave rider photo is an amazing action shot. The subject placement, body position, and the angle of the wave and board help guide your eye around the frame in a very effective way. Her blue top helps bring her right into the forefront and the exposure is perfect for the light and the speed of the action. It has everything--strong subject, powerful movement, bold colors, and overall, it just screams action. Very well done!"

 

Honorable Mention, selected by guest judge Dan Bailey

Photographer: Owen Roth
"Fiordland_Park-Milford_Track_Day"

from Dan Bailey: "This photo really says adventure and it really brings me into the scene with them as a participant. It makes me want to know what those guys are looking at and where they’re going. It definitely incites my imagination, and that’s a powerful thing in photography."

Announcing the Winners of the Food Photography Contest

 

Congratulations to the winners of March's Food Photography Contest!

 

Food Photography Contest Winners

Grand Prize Winner, selected by guest judge Cara St. Hilaire (former editor-in-chief of photo.net and blogger of 1veggieatatime)

Prize: 6-month membership to America's Test Kitchen Online Cooking School
Photographer: belgie mcclelland
"Cupcakes"

from Cara St. Hilaire: "This shot, bright and mouthwatering, shows action.  By showing the sprinkling of the sugar on top of the cupcake, it depicts interaction and evokes more excitement than treating food as still life. Food doesn't always have to be a static, inanimate subject.  The depth of field and angle also draws your eye to the falling sugar."
