Epson Pano Award winners

Overall Open Winner - The Sunshine Skyway Bridge St Petersburg Florida - Dennis Ramos This year the competition received 3971 entries from 870 photographers in 54 countries. The fifth Epson International Pano Awards is dedicated to the art of panoramic photography. Advances in digital photography and editing software has resulted in a surge in the popularity of image stitching, especially in the panoramic format. Panoramic film photography also remains alive and well. The Epson International Pano Awards showcases the work of panoramic photographers worldwide and is the largest competition for panoramic photography.

The overall winner of the 2014 Open competition is Dennis Ramos from the USA. His winning image is also first in the Open – Built Environment category. Dennis says, ‘It was a beautiful cloudless day with some patches of rolling fog over the bridge. My friend and I decided to go fishing that mid afternoon. I found out that my reel wasn't working so I grabbed my camera gear instead. I took a lot of shots around including this long exposure panoramic shot of the bridge. It took me a lot of time waiting and shooting in between the fog to get a good exposure. While waiting during long exposure times, I wished I had my fishing rod as well.’

Other place-getters in the Open competition are; Marcio Cabral – Open/Nature 2nd place Timo Lieber – Open/Nature 3rd place (Timo was also the 2013 Photographer of the Year) Will Dielenberg – Open/Nature 4th place Denis Gadbois – Open/Built Environment 2nd place, Highest Scoring Spherical/360 Image, Highest Scoring IAPP Member Marco Castelli – Open/Built Environment 3rd place Mohammad Reza Domiri Ganji - Open/Built Environment 4th place, Highest Scoring HDR Image Douglas Peebles – Highest Scoring Image from Film Capture Alexander Vershinin – Highest Scoring Gigapixel Image

A Rare opportunity

AIPP SAPPA graphic If you love photography and are wanting to learn more, the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) are holding their state print awards.

Correctly titled the Epson SA AIPP Epson Professional Photography Awards or SAPPAs, this annual event is open to the public to see great South Australian and Northern Territiry photography judged.

The photographs are judged as prints in categories, one at a time over two days by a rotating panel of five judges. The work is presented in a darkened room with only the print illuminated to draw the attention of the room. The judges each score the print between 50 and 100. Any variation by a single judge from the average of more than 10 points requires discussion and rescoring. The room often becomes tense as a judge fights for something they see in a photograph that other judges do not see.

The categories that are judged are; Illustrative, Landscape, Travel, Documentary, Commercial, Wedding, Family, Portrait

The timing of each category can vary, but the judging needs to be over in two days. So some times it runs late.

The judging panels are always a mixture of highly awarded and or experienced local and interstate photographers, to provide an unbiased team. The entries are generally kept under wraps to ensure judges have not seen the work, the work is also presented anonymously and it must have been created in the past 2 years. It is difficult objectively judging a subjective thing, but this system is internationally recognised as the standard.

The result of the judging is category winners, for example the Wedding Photographer of the Year and from that an over all Epson SA Professional Photographer of the Year 2014.
