First Place: Estiaan Labuschagne, Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, South Africa
Title: Barbershop Madness
What Carrie had to say: I chose the winners based on the criteria of the competition, which was titled “Fashion”. Barbershop madness had a story line, comedy, fashion, and got an A for effort in choosing a location, attention to styling and character casting and setting a mood. Same goes for the 2nd place winner; attention was paid to location and mood setting. They also created a smoke which added mood to the shot. There were some nice shots that I didn’t consider simply because they weren’t really “Fashion” shots; Nausikaa was a fun retro shot and Jamaican Beauty Red was a well done portrait.
