This wasn’t an easy topic and yet the quality of finalists was consistently excellent. Over the past four competitions we have provided more and more guidance, inspirational images and stories. We have encouraged people to think about the stories behind their images and how their work portrays those stories. In this challenge we went a step further and provided technical information that supported the theme - information about distance haze and depth of field.

It has been gratifying to see the contestants responding so well to the material we provided, especially so for me as I was the one creating the material. However I don’t want to detract from the wonderful work of the contestants. This competition sets new heights for visual storytelling and I am proud to offer my congratulations on behalf of the entire CGSociety.

Mark Snoswell, President CGSociety.
