Welcome to Best Shots - a unique photographic exhibition where you can browse and buy photographs by immensely talented photographers from around the world.
The exhibition showcases the 100 best images as chosen by the judges of The Station’s open photographic competition earlier this year.
As a judging team, we had almost 8,000 images to consider, submitted by photographers of all ages and experience, and arriving from over 60 different countries!
Because initial submissions were made online, we can proudly say it was an ‘international’ contest and, as such, a huge success. Thank you to everyone for entering. The range of subject matter was not only varied and original, but the standard of many of the images was exceptionally high. All the judges had worked on other photographic competitions, yet we all agreed that Best Shots was one of the most challenging, such was the excellence of the images entered.
It meant we had some difficult decisions to make. All work was judged anonymously and we took every image on its own merit, finally selecting what we believed to be the 10 best images for each category. We could so easily have chosen more.
It is our final selection that makes up this exhibition. We hope you find it striking and inspiring. I personally believe that the range of subject matter, artistry and technique is outstanding. There are 1 awarded for each category, but we want you to have the final say by voting for your favourites. The photographer with the image that gets the most public votes wins £1000, so your opinion counts.
Your votes also give you entry into a brilliant prize draw, with a week's holiday in an historic Vivat Trust property the top prize of 100 different prizes to be given away.
Have fun deciding and vote for as many as you like – today!
