Nominations for the Silver Camera announced
What distinguishes a good photo? The motif? The technical quality? The moment? The atmosphere? A star-studded jury have to answer this question every year, because the organisers of the CHIO Aachen, the Aachen-Laurensberger Rennverein e.V. (ALRV), confer the “Silver Camera” for the best international equestrian sport photo of the year.
This year, the former national coach of the Dutch show jumping team, Rob Ehrens, last year’s winner, Diana Wahl, Andreas Müller (CEO Medienhaus Aachen) and the ALRV board member, Birgit Rosenberg chose the winner and the runners-up. “The quality of the photos is excellent. It wasn’t easy to make a decision,” Birgit Rosenberg said about the 86 photographs submitted.
The following have been nominated for the “Silver Camera” (in alphabetical order):
The winner will be announced at the CHIO Aachen in the Main Stadium on Saturday evening, July 2nd. The winner receives 2,500 Euros, second place is endowed with 1,000 Euros and 500 Euros go to third place.
