Ellerslie Photography Winners Focus On Imagination


A dreamy image capturing a fairytale of flowers has won the 2013 Ellerslie International Flower Show Focus on Flowers photography competition.

This year’s Overall winner and winner of the Landscape Category is Kim Falconer from Motueka for her composition “Bedtime Stories’.

Judge Pam Cumming says,“This is an absolutely magical image that brings together great design, composition and imagination.”

Kirkwood Intermediate School student, Kelib Brown (11) from Ilam in Christchurch won the under 15 with his cleverly stylised image of a bee on a rose flower.

“The competition is a brilliant opportunity for people to show us their creativity and to incorporate beautiful flowers into their work.

“I am excited to see the highly imaginative and technically brilliant work this year - the standard of photographs is exceptionally high,” Ellerslie International Flower Show Exhibition Manager Kate Hillier says.

The photography competition is run annually. There are two age categories for entrants; one for those under 15 years and a second for those 15 years and over.

The winners were awarded in three broad subject categories, which were selected to encourage imagination and inventiveness:
