After a very difficult series of judging sessions to cut down the thousands of entries we received to just two, we are pleased to announce the winners of our Capture South Africa photography competition!
Alco Brand’s unique twist on the iconic image of Cape Town meant his image ‘Cape Town by Night’ really stood out and the judges loved the stunning colours of the night sky with the reflection on the rocks and bustling city below.
Moira Enslin’s thought-provoking portrait of an elderly gentleman titled ‘Memories’ perfectly captured the emotion, character and personality of the subject and was the judges overall favourite in the people category.
Once again thank you to everyone who entered the competition and congratulations to our two winners!
