The judging of these photos has caused a good deal of discussion and a bit of healthy disagreement as we asked ourselves, “How do you judge a Photo competition?”
At first we thought that perhaps we should call in a professional photographer to be our Judge, and they could look at things like photo composition, technical qualities and looking for the overall best photo.
However, the more we discussed it, the more we felt we should choose photos that captured a unique view of trekking in the Andes – what makes Andes treks special, or what makes Apus special. That is, the ability of the photo to tell a story.
It was a difficult decision – and congratulations to everyone that entered.
Here are the winners:
