Overall 2014 Winner 2014 Classic Landscape Category Winner: NEVILLE JONES    
THE 2014 WINNERS AND TOP 50 CATEGORY PLACINGS
There was once again some really strong competition in the Better Photography Magazine Photograph of the Year competition and our 2014 winner is Neville Jones. Congratulations!
Neville’s photograph of a lone tree in a lake is a popular subject, but it was handled so strongly that it was a clear winner for the judges. Neville’s prize is AUS $5000 cash!
Neville is also the Classic Landscape category winner, and as such, he and all the other category winners will take home a sponsor pack comprising a Datacolor Spyder4Express, a Canson Infinity paper pack, a Momento Photobook to the value of $150, a Sandisk memory card and a Wacom Intuos Pro Medium tablet and stylus. Thanks to our great sponsors for supporting our competition.
And thanks also to our esteemed judges David Oliver and Tony Hewitt, AIPP Grand Masters of Photography, who joined me to make the deliberations.
This year there were around 1100 entries and we estimate that the majority earned a Bronze Award or higher. A Bronze Award is given where the judges can see some elements of photographic skill and imagination and want to acknowledge what the entrant has submitted. And given our competition is entered by passionate photographers, it’s gratifying to have such a high overall standard. And we hope the short judge comment will be of use in your future endeavours.
However, if you’re wanting to challenge yourself, the award to aim for is a Silver. Earn a Silver Award in this competition and you have achieved a level that has a very good chance of scoring Silver in a professional competition as well. And if you earned a Gold? Congratulations! You’ve really impressed the judges and they’d like to have a photo like that in their own portfolio.
