3rd  price winner: Emily Marie Anderson
Nationality: British
Date of Birth: 14/02/1993

City: Southampton, Hampshire, England
Title: 'Invert'
 

Location: It is a park behind a Weston council estate and across weston shore.

Info: This shot is quite ambiguous when thinking of a wider meaning but depicts an individual with a lack of self identity and the location fits her mood perfectly..it's not just simple. I modified the ISO settings on my camera to add a grainy effect so it appeared more like an editorial story telling photo.

   
   

shared: 3rd prize: $US 500,-

   
 

1st price winner: Tianlin Zhu

Ms. Goh Ching Lee,
(distinguished member of the jury):
"just a few words about the winning photo and what it conveys to me":

" I found the photo beautifully composed and taken from an angle that seems to amplify the seeming simplicity of the immediate world inhabited by the two girls. The girls' swinging gait and the expanse of blue sky around them suggest a great sense of freedom, confidence
and motion. They appear to be students or recent Asian immigrants to Canada living in a  modest neighbourhood. Yet despite the social or
economic challenges this may imply, they exude a can-do attitude in boldly stepping out to seek their dreams and place. There's also a sense that the world is moving with them, or even revolving around them.  The world is at their feet, and is theirs to take."

3rd  price winner: Ai Wei Carrie LamNationality:Singaporean
Date of Birth:13/04/1986
City: Singapore
Title: All dressed up
Location: Haw Par Villa


Information:on another photo The chairs in the background tell the "importance" of academics and how materials things like clothing are pre-eminent with wealthy and upper class students. In contrast, this image gives a zen touch as if It ,like me, tries to bring enlightenment to these people.

Bravo to all participants of ITFPC. We are happy to announce the winners. We received entries from 45 cities around the world. There were a lot of quality photographs that came in. After several pre-selections we reached a list of 60 entries that were submitted to the 15 jurors for their final judgment. (click here to see the final 60) It was not an easy choice. , in fact as one of the jurors said: "It is very difficult  to select just 4 pictures for me. I guess it was hard to select 60 Photos for you.
Below are shown the results of 13 jurors
To reserve anonymity the results are posted randomly and they do not correspond with the order of the listing of jurors on the itfpc website
Unfortunately the replies of 2 jurors did not reach us by the competitionís deadline.
