Jophel Botero Ybiosa's image 'Flow of Fun' won first prize in our FLOW competition

Last week on our Facebook page, we announced the long awaited results of our photography competition FLOW. With over 500 entrants to the last theme in the Footprints series, our judge Steve Bloom, himself an award-winning photographic artist, really did have his work cut out. Luckily for Steve, we were able to whittle the entries down to a shortlist of 40 images before he was tasked with selecting those lucky participants whose work was to feature amongst the winning images.

Jophel Botero Ybiosa (above) was awarded first prize for his image 'Flow of Fun' and judge Steve Bloom said: "This picture shows the photographer's exceptional luck and timing. The children in the water appear to be enjoying themselves, seemingly oblivious to their hazardous situation. They are caught up in the flowing torrent, while behind them the bus moves quickly. The slight motion-blur of the bus emphasizes its speed. The boy's head is framed by the wheel, adding a sense of danger, and the composition is further enhanced by the oval pattern on the bus which frames and points to the boys, increasing the tension in the composition."
