In the last month I was fortunate enough to enter and win two photo competitions !!! I must say it feels really good to be recognized by somebody with experience.
Super stoked to have won 3rd place in the Vibe Category of the photo competition at the Ross Taylor Surf Contest!
We brought the kids from our Outreach program The Surfer Kids to the Ross Taylor Surf competition. The Ross Taylor Benefit Surf Contest is an annual event held in memory of local surfer Ross Taylor, who lost his life to cancer at the age of 29. All funds raised by this event is donated towards Hospice, which was Ross’s charity of choice after the care and support that they provided to him and his family in his last years.
Another exciting win was of the photo competition “Point of view”, organized by the new online newspaper Look4it Knysna and Eon Photography. Theme of the month was “Portrait of a woman”.
I was so excited to get the following message from the judges:
“Jenya captured the soft, nurturing, yet sensual side to a woman in this magnificent portrait. The soft lighting and careful composition, makes for a winning recipe within this theme.”
