2019 : 05 May Alex Mao Photo Award

John shen;Untitled. ;3 photographs from my current project which focus on public toliets.
Amanda Kelso; He Stands Tall. He Stands Strong; Mount Ruapehu is a very sacred and spiritual place to not only the people of Ngati Rangi but a lot of the Maori descendants of New Zealand.  I have always had an understanding of this, but have never encounter a powerful awakening as such.
Ryan Anderson; Late night blur; While preparing for a birthday party, fog thicker than I had ever seen rolled through. So i ditched the party in time to capture it before it left.
Ryan Anderson; You are not alone.; I wanted to keep the focus on just the subject without having just a generic crowd shot so I dashed ahead of the march to frame them between two posts. As with the other submitted images, I prefer to centre the focal point, or keep it within the centre third.
Jenny Partington ;Herring Cove; 35mm film photograph shot at Herring Cove with amateur film camera and kodak colour plus film
Jenny Partington; New Brighton Pier; Pier in New Brighton, Christchurch shot with 35mm kodak colour film on amateur film camera
