Released by Lumix digital cameras:
Three initial Lumix Awards winners revealed
The Lumix Award for 2003 has gotten off to a flying start. Three Monthly winners have already been rewarded for their interpretation of this year's theme - Man & Machine. The three have each won a Lumix DMC-FZ1 Digital Still Camera and a Tungsten Handheld from Palm.
The winners to date are:
June: Linda Wilson, with her series of images "Shining."
July: Reiner Felsmann, whose image "Fernsteuerung" evoked the comment,"...the fascination men have towards machines, independently of where they were born and of their social status", from Leticia Valverdes, the July judge.
August: Richard Willis, Richards's entry "The 51st Pickering Traction Engine Rally" caused Judge Carol Sharp to comment, "This is a very interesting image as you are not quite sure what is going on or whether it is a present day image - until you look more carefully and notice details like the boy's trainers!"
Check out the Winners page on the Lumix Award site to see Richard's work and read the judge's full comments. Could you do better?
With three months still left to run on the Competition, now is the time to let your members know that there is still a chance to win one of our super monthly prizes, or to go on and win our "Best in Awards" prize - a week-long photographic workshop in a European country.
