2013 TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS ANNOUNCES THIS YEAR’S WINNERS
Jesper Anhede of Sweden has been recognised in the field of travel photography by winning the prestigious People’s Choice winner title in the 2013 Travel Photography Awards.
The awards, which are brand new this year, attracted a record number of quality entries from around the world by offering a total prize package of over US$20,000 in prizes. Jesper Anhede’s entry stood out as an exceptional portfolio of travel images and was well deserving of the win.
The award judges included five working professionals in the travel and photography industries, together with celebrity judge Phil Keoghan – extensive traveller and host of the Amazing Race. Stage One of the judging saw the judges choose 40 finalist entries, which were then individually scored by each judge with the top combined scores taking out the winning prizes.
“The overall quality was very high and there were some amazing images submitted” commented Awards Administrator, Catherine McLennan. “The winning portfolios were those entries that were able to sustain that quality through all five of their images; visually and creatively telling a story about a place – documenting the people, the land or the culture found there”.
