The Creative Awards is part of the larger international competition put on by the Siena International Photography Awards. The aim is to encourage photographers to experiment with the subject matter they capture as well as their post-processing techniques. There isn’t any limit to how much an image can be digitally manipulated.
11 jurors selected winning and runner up images from 12 different categories including Fine Art, Abstract, Nature & Landscape, Open Theme and Architecture. The Overall Winner, and recipient of the ‘Pangea Prize,’ along with € 50,000 in photography gear, is Hardijanto Budiman for his image of ping pong players competing in Indonesia.
Typically, winners and runners up attend the annual Siena Awards and their works are displayed in the ‘I Wonder if You Can’ outdoor exhibition. For now, they can be viewed in this online gallery.
