This exhibition is to show winners’ works of the competition BEYOND THE EYE – Daily Life. This is a competition of contemporary color photography enhanced by the mastery of manipulation techniques and it was also the first competition launched by CREATIVE MACAU. Reason to set up this competition was that we always believe there are a large amount of talent people hidden in Macau and it is necessary to have a platform for them to present themselves in the public.
Though BEYOND THE EYE – Daily Life was an unusual photo competition, we still received great helps form our kind local supports including Jornal Tribuna de Macau, Macau Business, Destination Macau, Hoje Macau, Civic and Municipal Affairs Bureau, Macau Daily Times, Macau Post, Photo Final, Macau Closer, TDM (Chinese and Portuguese channels), radio channels and Chinese newspapers.
The jury, consisting of respected photographers, visual arts and publishing professionals as well as the organizers and sponsors, based their decisions on the series of images submitted and designate winners for the First Place, Second Place and Third Place , and the two special awards named MACAU BUSINESS award and CANON award. The conceptual quality, group coherence and innovativeness are the main criteria for the final selection.
