UIM Photographs.

11th Annual Photo Competition

Once again the response to the annual UIM Photographic Competition was impressive with 26 photographers from thirteen different nations submitting some 251 pictures in six different categories.

The jury had a difficult task in choosing the overall winners thanks to the impressive quality and diversity of work.

The six different categories – Aquabike, Atmosphere, Circuit, Endurance, Offshore and Retouched – were judged on the criteria of creativity, technical quality, composition, subject matter and overall impact with the total points scored deciding the winners.

Once again, Paul Lakatos of Austria took the top prize in Circuit, while Britain’s Chris Davies took first in Atmosphere – both winning images tying for the Image of the Year accolade with an impressive score of 56 out of 60.

Elsewhere, Simon Palfrader of Italy took gold in Offshore, Hungary’s Peter Sandor was first in Aquabike, Britain’s Drew Gibson was the winner in Endurance and Raffaello Bastiani of Italy emerged the winner in Retouched.

The top three images are reproduced in the yearbook and can also be viewed on the official UIM website.

Edited the link - sadly the English is way past me.

Takes great pictures, but you can never beat Chris Davies vision.

He works out in the hotel room the night before what shot he will take.

I shared a room with him Round Britain, just as I was nodding off to sleep, he said "tomorrow, I'm going to do head shots".

Those pictures have now been used all round the world in various publications.

The Inverness "Start Shot", wasn't luck - just a pro doing his job.
