The Image Challenge is a print competition where our students submit their best work from their portfolios at the end of the term. Each image is judged and scored, with the top score in each category and overall winners being declared.
Judging took place on April 17th in the Digital Photography studio and was conducted by three respected photography experts; Leonard Segall, Executive of the Sarnia Photographic Club; Petro Tiahur professional commercial photographer; and veteran Sarnia photojournalist Glenn Ogilvie, now with The Sarnia Journal.
The judging was intense and took over six hours to complete. Many of the winners are separated by extremely small scoring margins, is some cases, less than 1%.
Students had the opportunity to sit in the judging session and listen to the judges comments, and the experience was very educational for everyone.
Thanks to the judges who toiled over the images! It was very generous of them to commit a full-day to our students.
The winning entries will be posted very soon, so please visit again to see the fantastic winning images.
