Jury

Vår jury er sammensatt av kompetente fagfolk, journalister og fotografer.

Juryen vektlegger fremfor alt kvaliteten på bildet (fokus, belysning, komposisjon, etc.) og tanken bak bildet i forhold til konkurransetemaet. Totalinntrykket av bildet må stemme overens med valget av kategorien, herunder også bildeutforming. For å øke sjansene dine i konkurransen med et innlevert bilde, bør følgende kriterier være oppfylt:

• En passende bildestørrelse; minst 1080 x 1080 piksler.
• Ett enkelt bilde per fil; ingen kollasjer
• Ingen rammer, grafikkelementer eller tydelige bildemanipulasjoner.
• Ingen tekstelementer i bildet; som f.eks. navnet på fotografen eller copyright-merke.

Vurderinger eller kommentarer på vår hjemmeside utgjør et parameter ved den endelige vurderingen, slik at bilder med få bidrag også har en sjanse til å vinne.

Årets jury i CEWE Photo Award
Juryformann : Yann Arthus-Bertrand

Juryformann : Yann Arthus-Bertrand

Aerial photography made the photographer and environmentalist, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, internationally famous. Already at the age of 20, Yann, who has an affinity for nature, became director of a nature reserve in central France. Equipped with a camera, Yann Arthus-Bertrand explored the earth from a bird's eye view as a balloonist in 1976. Since then, the UN Special Envoy for the United Nations Environment Programme has dedicated his life to environmental protection. Yann Arthus-Bertrand is the founder of the world's first aerial photography agency, the GoodPlanet Foundation and a non-profit film production company, HOPE. This has resulted in books and films designed to sensitise people to the issue of environmental protection and a shared responsibility.

Dynamic, creative and a little crazy, that's the British photographer Christie Goodwin.

She has since worked as a tour and portrait photographer with top artists such as Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney and Rod Stewart. In 2018 Christie published her first major photography book, Memories We Made, which looks back on a photographic decade with Ed Sheeran. When she's not on the tour bus, the Londoner also works as the official photographer for the Royal Albert Hall. In her spare time, Christie prefers to spend time in France with her camera - even though she can't really stand spare time.
