APS Bank opens the ‘Green’ Photography Exhibition in Malta
|Email item||Print item||
APS Bank has opened the photographic exhibition ‘Green’, showcasing the winning entries to the 2011 competition. Participation was very encouraging with 98 photographers submitting over 250 prints.
The Photography Competition invited participants to depict anything that is green, whether the colour in itself or any of the various connotations that the word has. This was the second in a series of competitions being organised by APS Bank in collaboration with the Malta Photographic Society.
Out of all the entries, twelve photos were chosen to compile the Bank’s 2012 calendar. The photo ‘L-Induratur’ by Josef Bonnici placed first in this competition, while the photo ‘Qaddief’ by the same photographer and the photo ‘Country Life’ by James Cassar placed second and third respectively.
During the event Mr. E.P. Delia, APS Bank’s Chairman, announced the new competition for this year with the theme ‘Movement.’. All entries to this photography competition are expected to depict movement in any form. Altough all entries must have been shot in Malta, photographers are not expected to show typically Maltese landscapes or traditional objects to prove this point. Winning submissions will be determined mainly on basis of the author’s creativity and the work’s composition. The ‘Movement’ Photographic Competition Entry form is available for download here.
All entries will be reviewed by an independent panel of judges, and the results will be published by the end of September on the Bank’s website. Cash prizes will be awarded to the first 42 winning photographs. Shortlisted entries will then form part of a photo exhibition, which is planned for the beginning of next year, and may also be featured in the Bank’s annual calendar, promotional material or other publications as has been done with the photographs of the ‘Green’ theme.
The present ‘Green’ Photography Exhibition is open to the general public between Monday and Friday from 8.15am to 1.30pm and on Saturday mornings between 8.15am and 11.45am at the APS Bank Centre in Birkirkara (Swatar). Entrance is free of charge.
