Canon is pleased to showcase some of the striking entries from its Between the Lines competition, capturing the values of the Commonwealth Games.
Entries showcased the three core values of the Commonwealth Games: humanity conveying benevolence, togetherness or human nature: destiny conveying fate, aspiration or ambition; and equality conveying collective spirit, fairness, non-discrimination, or inclusion. Images were judged by Neale Conroy, Canon UK & Ireland Marketing Director and Molly Darlington, Professional Sports Photographer and Canon Ambassador, alongside Editorial and Commercial Photographer Paul Cunningham.
The three winning images all conveyed how capturing emotion is an integral part to sharing messages in photography. From a Muay Thai fight to friends supporting each other day-to-day, the selected winners demonstrated brilliant composition and the ability to generate big impact.
“The level of skill, both in artistic ability and technical proficiency was very high,” said Neale Conroy, Canon UK & Ireland Marketing Director. “We were very excited to see how the photographers would interpret the briefs and were not disappointed - with these amateur photographers really pushing their technical ability. There was a real variety to the submissions, demonstrating how each photographer saw the values, with a mixture of sports related images and students applying the themes to their everyday lives.”
The three winning photographers will be taken trackside with Editorial and Commercial Photographer Paul Cunningham to learn top tips as well as editing expertise.
