Tesselaar’s tulip festival provided a blank canvas for these FF Kids With Cameras to create their own pictures for the CAMERA CHALLENGE in the early days of Spring. With a palette of colour to fire the imaginatiuon the happy band went about their task. Tesselaar’s photographer Neil had his job cut out to make the selections. Thanks to him, and all those who made POSTS of PRAISE this has been another grand event for the KWC. The winner of the BUNDLE OF BULBS from Tesselaar’s will be announced in next FRIDAY ON YOUR MIND.
THE TONY IMAGINE CREATIVE CHOICE taken by Madeleine took out this coveted title for which she proud to have found such as an inspiring frame. Well Done.
THE FLEUR AWARD has been a long standing recognition in the FF KWC ROCKLEY AWARDS and this image by Madeleiene will take it’s place amongst the contenders in 15. This will go a long way towards taking out the gong, and we all wish her luck. THE VISTA AWARD goes to Madeleine and its not hard to see with the beautiful red tulip being silhouetted in the glowing sunlight. Set against the Dandenong hills with a clear blue sky as a backdrop, this image commands your attention.
THE PROP SHOT showed innovation with Lauren taking the time and thought to add a tulip to the fairies toe. This too her beyond just creating another shot to one that incorporated the tulip theme into the concept. THE SINGLE FLOWER trophy award goes to Neave who found the subtle yellow of this tulip to alluring to ignore. From the many flowers on show, she chose this wisely to catch the judges eye, and no doubt yours too.
MORE YELLOW took the eye for the NiCe AWARD. Introduced for next years ROCKLEY AWARDS, Misha used her size to get down low and dirty to get the ants view of the tulips making them look more like a forest. This young girl will be glowing just like the flowers.
AND THE GRAND HURRAH FOR THE WINNER OF THE OVERALL TESSELAAR CHOICE GOES TO MISHA RAVIPATI. Congratulations are shouted all round for the young camera grinner. Getting down low n dirty and shooting across the tops of the tulips worked well together with the glint of sunlight. A well earned result that will be a proud addition to the 2015 ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION & AWARDS.
