We are excited to have Jennifer B Hudson as the guest judge for this photo contest. Jennifer is a fresh, young visual artist creating staged imagery that is both artistically stylized and meticulously crafted. Alongside varied private portrait commissions, she is an international speaker and lecturer. She has just completed her latest major body of work entitled ‘Medic’, a collection of ten images exploring the breadth of human relationships during illness and recovery. Her work has been a part of many group and solo exhibitions, and is represented by three major galleries across the country.

Grand Jury Winner

"I enjoy the camera work on this image very much. I love the bold use of color, warm vs cool tones, and the rich, full tonal range. You appeal to all the senses, it even feels cold, and slick, as if you could reach out and touch the surfaces. The use of varied texture is magnificent. I love the reflective quality, the softness of the body of the snail, and the crisp, rigid shell. The composition is super pleasing, and the image has tons of impact." - Jennifer Hudson

Runner Up

"I am drawn immediately to the transformative aspect of this work.  You've taken a mundane, everyday object, and abstracted it.  I love the use of the camera angle, selective focus, and passive background space.  It's a wonderful study of vivid color, and altered perception." - Jennifer Hudson

Runner Up

"I love the atmosphere in this image.  You have given the greenhouse a human quality, as if it's a little old person holding their ground, nestled in place.  I enjoy the surreal colors, warm and cool, and the dramatic use of light.  You've brought this little place to life, and given it a breath.  Lovely impact, and a great narrative quality." - Jennifer Hudson
