    Interesting choice for first place - I find it a bit too simplistic a representation of the subject , however fluidly executed - what does everyone think?

    Just a few pics:

    Damien and I setting up.

    Sonny Zann and Damien.

    We skipped lunch as we were all in the zone setting up. Lorena saved us with food at 2.30PM. Toasted sandwiches from CIBI next door were awesome.

    Sonny, Biddy and Zann. Sonny, Biddy and Andrew did a crazy good job of hanging the works!

    Jeremy's pup!

    The Sponsors.


    6PM, doors open!

    We were lucky to have Simon Winkler from RRR busting out great tunes for the night.

    Our bar guy Menake had a mad rush from 6-7PM.

    We were all happy with the great turnout, it was a huge space to fill!

    It was a wonderful night. I intended to say hello to some INfonters that I recognised but my social awkwardness got the better of me. Still - it was great to see so many people there and I agree there were some amazing works in the top twenty.

    More, more!!

    Thanks guys, we are extremely impressed with the quality of work. It makes us very proud to see so many entries and that people take the time to break from work/study to submit.

    So many unpaid hours have gone into making this event come together and we are extremely grateful for each and every person who has put time into INfront. Without the support of our sponsors, judges, venues and helping hands we simply wouldn't be able to do what we do. On behalf of all the team we want to give thanks to everyone who got involved.

    Congratulations to the top 20, your work simply astounds me and we will endeavor to dispatch your prizes asap.

    Great selection of winners, very varied.

    I'm a big fan of the winning entry. It shows great restraint and captures a lot of detail despite its limited number of strokes.

    Just a little Lumix GF1 (I love it!).

    While some have noted the obvious skill of the artist, the subject in the winning entry is so lacking her own gaze that her eyes are obscured and she is rendered solely as an object. Presenting “woman” as sex object is reductionist and hackneyed. However, I was heartened to see a number of entries that sought to convey something beyond the usual.
