Results of National Geographic-EOS Young Photographer Award 2013

ASIA’S EOS YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHER AWARD 2013 ATTRACTS MORE THAN 3,500 ENTRIES FROM SINGAPORE

The inaugural EOS Young Photographer Award contest was a resounding success, attracting more than 27,000 entries from around Asia, with 3,565 Singaporeans among those vying for the grand prize: An all-expenses paid National Geographic Photography Workshop in the US, plus a Canon EOS 60D DSLR camera with EF-S18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS II Lens.

Themed “A Celebration of Colour”, the EOS Young Photographer Award 2013 was open to aspiring photographers aged 13 to 25, and jointly organised by National Geographic Channel and Canon Singapore Pte Ltd.

Of the thousands of hopefuls - from Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and Thailand, Hanggi Tyo, 21, from Indonesia emerged as the champion, walking away with the coveted first prize, with her entry, “My Full Colourful Smile”, a photograph taken at the Jember Fashion Carnival Show in Jakarta in December last year.

Tyo’s shot, which depicts a smiling young woman clad in a vibrantly colourful costume, garnered much praise from the judging panel, which included National Geographic photographer, Gabby Salazar.

First runner up was Malaysian Chan Zhi Ying, 22, who walked away with a Canon EOS 650D with EF-S18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS II Lens for her submission entitled “Happy in Red”. The photograph depicts a child splashing in a tub of water while having her bath, conveying a feeling of unbridled happiness and carefree delight.

Twenty-one-year-old Geovani Orlando from Indonesia also impressed the judges with his photo submission, “Paju Jawi From Ranah Minang”, earning him the title of second runner up and a Canon EOS 1100D with EF-S18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS II Lens.

In addition to the three main prizes, the contest also awarded bi-weekly winners for the colour-themed Voter’s Choice Award, held between April 9 to June 3, with an 8GB EOS Memory Drive and National Geographic Channel X Morn Creations Limited Version Shark Backpack each.

Meanwhile, the Grand Voter’s Choice, which was tracked from the beginning of the campaign, was awarded to Saidkhsan from Indonesia. He took home an EOS Camera Bag and National Geographic Photo Book for his submission entitled “Love Story”, depicting two entwined butterflies on a vine.

Other noteworthy entries highlighted by the judges were “Panorama de Shah Mosque” by Shaharyar Hyder, “The Longest Sock” by Firman Maulana, and “Three Yellow Guards” by Danniel Partogi.

Following the overwhelming response and success of this inaugural event, both organisers are now looking forward to kicking-off another photo contest in October 2013. More details will be released nearer the launch date.
