Congratulations to Chris Gardner from the US who has won $894.00 with a super photo of his 2½ year old daughter, Isla. The hair shades the face from direct sunlight which is perfect for this natural and timeless looking portrait. When I look at photos of myself taken in the early 1970's when I was I child I look at them and think, 'Was that really me?'. Perhaps one day Isla will do the same. She is very lucky to have a father who is such a skilled photographer.
Thank you to everyone who entered one of the 197 entries. And we'd also like to thank the judge Lisa Alessandra Kutzelnig for choosing twenty of the finest photos which must have been difficult as there were so many excellent photos.
