Photojournalism – COVID 19

Judge - Duncan Barnes

 

An image that reflects the effect that the COVID 19 pandemic has had on society and/or our day to day lives.

Photojournalism implies story-telling photographs such as are seen in the news media and periodicals, which may include documentary, contemporary life, illustrative, sport news or human interest.
In the interest of credibility, contrived situations or photographic manipulations which alter the truth are not acceptable. The story telling value of the photograph shall be weighed more than the pictorial quality.

Still Life (excluding animals and humans)

Judge: Colin White

Still life

Still life photography is a genre of photography used for the depiction of stationary subject matter, typically a small group of objects that features an arrangement of inanimate objects as its subject. Usually, these items are set on a table and often include
organic objects like fruit and flowers and household items like glassware and textiles.
It is the application of photography to the still life artistic style.
