Kids Photo Comp extended

Glenn ElvyThe deadline for the latest edition of D-Photo's Kids Photo Comp is being extended; you now have until 5pm, Monday, April 28 to submit your images and be in to win a Moleskine Photo Book Plus and the chance to be critiqued by a professional photographer.

Last issue's winner was Glenn Elvy. His image (above), titled The Gamer, was chosen by photographer Esther Bunning for its compellingly dramatic lighting and strong graphics created by the tight crop.

"The chosen format gives a strong sense of direction, as the hands play an integral part of the image storytelling," Bunning explains.

"A beautifully controlled image with sensitivity and intrigue, with a sense of friction at play in his intense stare — this leaves the viewer wanting to know more about the child and the emotions behind the image."

Congratulations also go out to our runners-up, who submitted the extremely strong images displayed below.
