The Judges

I am honoured to join my fellow judges once again in this year’s Capture the Colour contest. I’m a fan of all their work and we all worked well together last year picking the amazing winning images. Each of us will be in charge of picking a colour category winner (I’m Green) and the overall winner will be selected by all 5 judges.

Ken Kaminesky – Yellow
Abi King – Red
Me – Green
Christine Gilbert – White
Daniel Nahabedian – Blue

The Prizes

But not only will you have the chance to show off your best photography shots, you will also have the chance to win a bunch of prizes. What’s in store for this year?

  • The overall winner is going to be awarded a £3,000 travel fund.
  • Colour category winners being offered the choice of a 128GB iPad, a Fuji camera or £750 worth of Arc’teryx clothing and equipment.

The Rules: 

The Process is Simple, showcase five of your favourite travel snaps which truly capture the colour of the five photo categories of red, blue, green, yellow and white. I’ll be judging Green.

My Example Post:

You may not have a clue where to start, so all of the judges have put together their own sample post explaining what they will be looking for. I chose five of my favourite photos that capture the colours and to help you choose your own. See my example post from last year too! Once you have posted your five photos, nominate five people who you would like to see colourful photographs from. Let Travel Supermarket know by including a link to their contest page. I have my five nominations at the bottom of the photos along with a little overview of what I’ll be looking for when choosing the winner of the Green Category and helping to choose the overall winner.

What I’m Looking for

How I’ll be Judging: When choosing my travel photos I will be looking for ones that don’t really scream those colours but used them effectively to bring the photo to life. I am looking for in the photos is a unique way for you to express the colours. Each colour should be an element of the photograph and not dominate the whole scene. I am looking for something beyond the clichés like a red sunset, blue sky or yellow flowers. For me originality will always take precedence over a pretty photograph.
