I was recently invited to judge the Garuda Indonesia Photo Contest. It was an honor I was pleased to accept because the photography was awesome and the other judges on the panel were photographers I admire and respect. I spent a long but pleasurable day going through a pre-selection of 3000 photos, three categories of 1000; Nature, Culture and People. The contest is now in the final judging stage and winners should soon be announced.
There were more than 60,000 photos submitted from 18,000 participant from 94 countries.
