Juror: Al Satterwhite
Color in photography has symbolism and meaning that travels beyond what you see.
More than the combination of red, green, and blue or cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, color is a visual tool for non-verbal communication: a viewer's perception and connection to an image can be significantly enhanced by a certain hue.
Strip away the subject matter from a photograph, and what is left behind? Two things. The underlying geometry of the photo, its composition or balance, and the color. The design and geometry make an image coalesce, become solid, and enduring. Whereas the color carries the opposite message, one of transience and impermanence. That’s because colors are not inherent in objects, but change and evolve with the changing light – and we photographers know, light is always changing.

I was very impressed with the quality of work, and the wide range of vision of the many photographers; some very nice use of color and composition; bold use of color and particularly, some really nice close-up work with color in mind as one piece of the composition; some very simple and bold composition and also more complex use of color and design. very well done
