Nikon Auckland Photo Day - Key Mission Moving Image prize winner

Fellowship at Scandrett  by Sora Joseph Waningsinggel, Onehunga - Moving Image prize, a Nikon KeyMission 360. Shockproof, waterproof 4K enabled action camera allowing you to take full 360 degree footage in beautiful 4K.

Judges’ comment: “This fun montage took us on a family fishing excursion over a complete day, culminating in an evening meal. The day out captures the spirt of the 24-hour idea of the competition. It’s a wonderful sojurn with a family in our region on a lovely winter’s day.”

Photographer’s quote: “This is the fourth time we’ve gone on a family trip to Scandrett Regional Park with our friends. The place is really nice and we can be right by the sea. When I knew the Nikon Auckland Photo Day competition coincided with our trip, I thought I would capture it. Because the activity was fun I wanted to make sure the video looked like fun too.”

This is the second year in a row the Onehunga graphic designer has won a Nikon Auckland Photo Day prize, taking out the top prize in 2017. “Winning a prize again is great. Winning this category was a really nice surprise since it was the first time I have entered a moving image entry.”
