ECCLES CENTER PHOTOGRAPHIC ART COMPETITION - 2017 Judging this year's photographic art competition was a rewarding and pleasurable experience. I was strongly impressed with the caliber of entries and the obvious effort and artistic thought that went into each photograph.
The variety of entries was especially notable.
I could readily see that each photographer was striving to achieve a work of excellence and merit. Narrowing them down to a few "winners" was very difficult since all were winners in that they brought out the vision of each maker. It was only after considerable time viewing each entry, not once but several times, that I narrowed the finalists down to about 20 items.
Then after further consideration I selected six for the top awards -- Best of Show and five honorable mentions.
This was especially difficult since there was so much variation in the subject matter. This variation, however, makes for a much more interesting exhibit.
In judging I relied upon the following factors, a judging theory I developed many years ago for national judging:
1. The message of the photograph - the feeling or expression it portrays.
2. Lighting - the photographer's "paint brush" which gives the image depth and texture.
3. Composition - the relationship of the elements of the image to other elements and to the image as a whole - use of artistic principles.
4. Presentation - print quality, finishing, framing, etc.
5. Impact - how do these factors move the viewer.
In summary I must compliment the photographers who entered this competition and the Eccles Center for sponsoring the exhibit. This is a great example of leadership in the arts and especially in photography as a art form, which is so dear to my own heart. Thank you.
