The jury has voted and found a winner of this years competition for the best photo taken during the Aarhus Jazz Festival 2019
Congratulations to Carina Sundqvist, who won the Aarhus Jazz Festival Photo Competition 2019 - and thanks to all who shared your delightful pictures from the festival with us.
The jury provided the winning picture with these comments along the way:
The image is original in its expression and photojournalistic angle. Not so often do we see a jazz orchestra through people's rhythm-beating legs - it gives lots of sound to the picture side and oozes mood. The cropping could be wished a little closer to the bottom and top, and that the white surface was slightly dimmed because it catches the eye too much. Despite this, we have chosen to honor the image for its originality, and because of the fact that it works so well as a reportage photo.
The Jazz Festival's judging committee consisted of photographers Axel Schütt (Århus Stiftstidende) and Inge Lynggaard Hansen (Lynggaard Hansen Foto)
The prize will be the book "Jazzens Historie I Aarhus" as well as two tickets for a concert at the Aarhus Jazz Festival 2020
