The latest edition of D-Photo’s illustrious Kids Photo Comp closes in a week’s time, so be sure to get your entries sorted soon for a shot at fortune and glory. Last issue’s champion was Stacey Cavalier, who wowed our guest judge (and not for the first time) with her conceptually effervescent and technically immaculate portraiture style.
Our esteemed guest judge this time was Rachel Callander, award-winning wedding photographer and the force behind the Super Power Baby Project, who was drawn to the grave facial expression of the child being drawn on.
“He is being transformed from a small boy to a big business executive who isn’t going to take any crap!
“The black and white treatment works really well and we are drawn straight into the action and story of the image.”
Congratulations also go out to our runners-up, who submitted the extremely strong images displayed below.
