No doubt mo­ti­vated by this year’s highly-de­sir­able grand prize – a Fu­ji­film X-Pro2 mir­ror­less cam­era with an XF 23mm f2.0 lens – there was a flurry of en­tries in the months up to the clos­ing date. Con­se­quently, the last two rounds were very hotly con­tested, but the stan­dard of en­tries for the whole year of com­pe­ti­tion was very high in­deed. This gave the grand prize judges plenty to think about, but in the end, their de­ci­sion was unan­i­mous and this year’s Fu­ji­film Show­case cham­pion is Steven Sand­ner from Vic­to­ria.

As it hap­pens, Steven won the last round of the 2017 com­pe­ti­tion with a stun­ning wa­ter­fall study which demon­strated ex­cel­lent skills in fram­ing, com­po­si­tion and us­ing a long ex­po­sure time. Steven used a Pana­sonic Lu­mix G10 fit­ted with a 45-200mm zoom lens, but ob­vi­ously he’ll shortly be up­grad­ing the Fu­ji­film X-Pro2. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Steven, but also the other five fi­nal­ists in 2017 and thanks, once again, to Fu­ji­film Aus­tralia for its on­go­ing support of Show­case.
