Siena International Photo Awards 2017 Winners Announced

Selected from 49,429 entries, a nature photo that incredibly captured lightning strikes and a flock of cranes in motion on the Ogallala Aquifer near Wood River, Nebraska, U.S.A., has been selected as the overall winner of the 2017 Siena International Photo Awards (SIPA) contest. The photo, titled “Sandhill Cranes”, was shot by renowned National Geographic photographer Randy Olson.

The American photographer beat entrants from 161 countries to scoop the title of SIPAContest Photographer of the Year 2017. Olson took the photo in August 2016: “There was a ton of lightning right behind the birds. I put the camera on a tripod and just started pumping the shutter, making sequential 30-second exposures. This shot happened to capture the lightning and all the birds in motion,” Olson said in a recent National Geographic interview.

Ami Vitale, an American who works as a contract photographer with National Geographic, won the Storytelling category and the prestigious title of “Best Author 2017”. Her winning series documents experimental and largely successful efforts by Chinese bear keepers at the Hetaoping Wolong Panda Center to train cubs born in captivity to survive in the wilderness. Sergey Gorshkov‘s striking image of a fox having to face a gander, in Wrangel Island, earned the Russian photographer the first prize in Wildlife. Jonathan Bachman, after having received the 1st prize at this year’s edition of World Press Photo, is the winning photographer in the General category with his image of a man detained while protesting the death of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, U.S. on July 9, 2016. Alessandra Meniconzi, Switzerland, placed first in the Travel category for a young girl collecting firewood in Siberia; Roie Galitz, Israel, placed first in the Special category 2017, “Fragile Ice”, a photo of polar bear leaping on the floating sea ice in Svalbard; and James Smart, Australia, placed first in the Nature category for a photo of a storm in Black Hawk, South Dakota (USA). The Monochrome category was won by Jack Savage, United Kingdom, with a stunning image inspired by the beautiful city of Lviv. Joao Taborda, Portugal, won People & Portrait with a young girl standing in the middle of the crowd during the Portuguese Youth Festival; Hans-Martin Doelz, Germany, won Architecture with an interior shot of the Stuttgart City Library. The British sport photographer Tim Clayton came in first in the Sport category with an amazing image catching the Great Britain team winning the gold medal at the Rio Olympic Velodrome in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Under 20 prize went to Chinese photographer Zijie Gong, for his beautifully detailed shot of an old teahouse in Western China where an old man is making calculations on an abacus.

IPA 2016: Honorable mention for “the caravan”


March 2016

Although taking, sharing, and viewing photographs has become second nature for many of us, our regular engagement with images does not necessarily make us visually literate. This course aims to address the gap between seeing and truly understanding photographs by introducing a diversity of ideas, approaches, and technologies that inform their making. In this course you will look closely at photographs from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art and hear a variety of perspectives on what a photograph is and the ways that photography has been used throughout its nearly 180 year history: as a means of artistic expression, as a tool for science and exploration; as an instrument of documentation; to tell stories and record histories; and as a mode of communication and critique in our ever increasingly visual culture.
