During the Swedish Championship in Portrait Photography 2017, my image Forever Online was awarded gold in the “Digital Illustration” category and selected as “Image of the Year” 2017. An international jury rated all images according to the International Standard for Competition in Photography, the following points were considered:
Impression, power, creativity, style, composition, presentation, color balance, interest center, motive interpretation, technique, story.
Forever Online got the second highest score in the entire competition, 98 points out of 100 possible, but all of my three contributions were awarded diplomas and high points.
As a result of the victory in the Swedish Championships I was selected to represent Sweden in one of the world’s largest photo contests, the World Photograpic Cup. This is the second year in the row I’m selected to the WPC. The competition is a team competition in which all national contributions are counted together, but each photographer also competes individually in different categories with the chance to win medals.
I’ve been selected with my personal projects “Forever Online” in the Digital Illustration category and “Shortcut” in the Commercial category.
