2023 Photo Comp Winner
Congratulations to Isla S for winning the 2023 GTASA Photo Comp.
See her image on the left and caption below:
This photo suits this year’s theme ‘Changing Human and Physical Landscapes’ because of the powerful message conveyed to people through an innocuous street artwork. This important message, ‘Climate action now’ tells us that we need to step up and reduce our impact towards climate change. The physical landscape around us is constantly changing, due to human-made impact. This photograph is appealing because the bold message is painted in black which contrasts with the white background. The rusting metal of the pole frames the artwork and has corroded over time due to human impact, adding an industrial feel to the photo.
