After receiving close to 4000 entries from across the country, Getty Images has announced the overall winner in its Grab 2011 photography competition. The competition theme was ‘captured moments’ – snapshots of everyday life in Australia.
The judges selected just 20 finalists and awarded the top prize to Rachel Cutler from Sunshine Coast for ‘Play Fighting Friendship’ (view her image below). She takes home a Nikon D700 DSLR & AF-S 85mm f1.4 lens and will become a contributor to the Getty Images Flickr Collection. The runner-up prize went to Mark Tipple for ‘Navigate’, and People’s Choice was awarded to Alam Sulthoni for ‘The Guru’.
The 20 finalists’ images are on display at the Showcase Gallery, 85 William Street, Sydney. You can also check out the entries on Getty Images Australia Facebook page.
