Competition

Annual competition results : a particularly good batch !

0

The Club Photo International started the New Year in style on January 10th with the inauguration of its annual photo exhibition and prize-giving ceremony followed by a cocktail.
Sarah Jordan, Deputy Editor

The competition theme this year was “movement” and a maximum of three entries were accepted from members and non-members up to the deadline of 5 December 2017. One hundred and twenty-two entries were received from a total of 45 participants. Staff from 12 different UN entities and six missions took part.
The best photo submitted by each participant was numbered and entered anonymously into the competition, which, further to two disqualifications, resulted in 43 original photos being evaluated by the jury made up of Guy Mettan, Director of the Swiss Press Club, Catherine Fiankan-Bokonga, Vice-President of the Association of Accredited Correspondents at the United Nations (ACANU) and Sergio da Silva, founding member and outgoing President of the CPI. 

1st prize – Desislava Panteva – Fantasia Fest in Morocco

The six best photos were announced at the ceremony as well as a special Jury prize-winner. All 43 competing photos are exhibited until 26 January on the third floor of the E-building and can be admired afterwards on the Club website.
This year’s photos were a particularly good batch with some very imaginative interpretations of the word “movement”. Prize-winners were a mixture of experienced Club members and complete newcomers. The same can be said of the equipment they used – from top-of-the-range to the simple smart phone.

2nd prize – Esteban Rodrigue-Martinez – Pájaros

Such is the vocation of the CPI – it’s a club for anyone who enjoys photography and wants to share and/or learn on the subject.

 

 

 

 

3rd prize – Emmenegger Georges – Battements d’ailes

 

4th prize – Mariangela Linoci – Upstream

 

 

 

            For 2018, the CPI has a new President: Fabien Dumesnil and the first session of the year and its theme (one per month) will shortly be announced on the Club website. January is always a good moment for new resolutions/directions and with an annual subscription of just 50 CHF you can both improve your photographic skills and meet people who share your interest.
