Thank you to all the photographers that participated in the Visual Poetry Photo Contest, sharing their best photos showing us their interpretations of the contest theme. Congratulations to the winners and finalists, and a special round of applause for the Grand Jury Winner who wins a paid photo adventure.

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Spencer Pablo for his collaboration as a guest judge. Bashful unless stirred by technology and with a penchant to laugh at his jokes before anyone else gets it, Spencer Pablo may be one of the most oddly placed characters among the Sony Artisans of Imagery. Introduced to his colleagues as the “nerd” of the bunch, he has a knack to always be on the lookout for an opportunity to learn– anything from circuit board design to child rearing. Comfortable behind a lens for over 20 years, his images have appeared in newspapers and museums.His work spans from landscapes to travel to family portraiture, and anything from behind the camera to in front of a classroom.
