Ballet News photography competition winner announced

Ballet News photography competition winner announced

I ran a competition to find a new and original photograph that had never been published before. There were lots of entries and it’s been pretty tough choosing the winner.

I am very pleased to announce that Andrea Paolini Merlo, with her beautfiul Swan Lake photograph below, has won the competition.

Swan Lake

SwansVision Photograph : Andrea Paolini Merlo

The photograph was taken on 23/04/2009  at the Swan Lake performance by the Hungarian National Ballet.

The photograph features, from left to right: Orsolya Gáspár, Julianna Juratsek, Csilla Arany

Andrea used a Canon EOS 5D to take the shot, which has not been digitally enhanced.

I hope you agree that Andrea is a worthy winner.  Congratulations, Andrea.

And please don’t forget, photography is at the heart of Ballet News and you can do your bit to help.

    That a beautiful image- congrats! It reminds me of a cover of a dance book I saw recently. Both images were motion-shots. Again, congrats Andrea. 🙂
