The adjudication process consisted of a team of 11 persons who individually shortlisted their top choices from the 14 finalists. Each finalist was requested to provide further information on their photo submission such as proof of origin, ownership, and relevance to our photo competition. Final classification was based on ownership, relevance, and originality of each photo.
It was really a hard task to come up with the final list. And it was such a shame that there were so many other gorgeous photos which did not make it to the final 14.
We would like to thank all those who participated within our photo competition. We were overwhelmed with the response of the general public and wish that we will organise similar competition of this form in the future.
