We are pleased to announce the result of the CPI photo competition on Trees.

More than 150 photographs from over 50 participants were submitted to the Club Photo International for its 2011 Competition and the quality has been particularly high this year. We thank all participants for their willingness to share their beautiful work with us.

The photos were judged on their technique, creativity and relevance to the contest theme by a jury composed of Sergio Da Silva, president of the CPI, Kristian Skeie, teacher of photography at Webster University and Régis Colombo, president of the Swiss Professional Photographers Association.

This year, the first prize winner is Giovanni Valensisi’s photo “Bent with the Wind”.

The other five awarded photographs were from Vincent Fung, Ernesto Castro, Aisha Coke, Aziyade Poltier-Mutal and Jan Hoffmann.

Two special mentions were also awarded to Shubber Hamoudi and Hon Fai Ng.
