Tourism Philippines Over-Under/Split Frame Shot, Underwater and Landscape Beach Photo Competition Finalists Announced
This month, we asked professional and amateur photographers in Australia to send us their best over-under/split shot, underwater or landscape beach digital colour photographs for a chance to WIN the Tourism Philippines Over-Under/Split Frame Shot, Underwater and Landscape Beach Photo Competition and embark on a dream photography expedition to Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure Best Island in the World.
Photographers, instagrammers and diving and travel enthusiasts across Australia responded with some outstanding images and top quality entries received.
We are excited to announce the three finalists, in no particular order:
Mark Fitzpatrick of Mackay QLD
Daniel Moore of Yowie Bay NSW
Nelson Corbett of Brisbane QLD
Mark, Daniel and Nelson are going to Palawan, Philippines for an on-site photography expedition from 12 to 16 September 2016, all-expenses paid.
During the expedition, they will be taking photos, submit five (5) of their best images taken on-site and compete for the Grand Prize.
Their photographs will be judged by renowned National Geographic Live explorer, Thomas Peschak, as well as feature in an Exhibition to be held in conjunction with the National Geographic Live Australia events in October.
A judging panel created by the Philippine Department of Tourism Australia and New Zealand considered the photographic technique, the artistic and unique quality of the images and style as the main criteria for choosing the Finalists.
We will be keeping you all posted on the images they will capture during the expedition and who will win the Tourism Philippines Over-Under/Split Frame Shot, Underwater and Landscape Beach Photo Competition.
Best of luck to Mark, Daniel and Nelson!
