WATER FOR LIFE
Perhimpunan Fotografer Bali (Bali’s Photographer Community) hosted the 3rd Bali Photo Awards (BIP) 2017, a photo competition that aims to encourage photographers to keep on creating marvelous works of art. This year, participants were challenged to take photos with the theme “Air Dalam Budaya” or “Water in Traditions” to reflect how important water is in our daily lives and to raise awareness of water preservation. A number of talented photographers submitted their work, and after a tight deliberation, the judges – which include Anom Anik Agung, Agatha Anne Bunanta, Ida Bagus Andi Sucirta, Made Widnyana Sudibya and Agung Parameswara – announced the winners; Petrus Arif Tri Hanowo, Mohammad Reza Gemi Omandi and I Wayan Mardana as the first, second and third winners respectively, while Mukhamad Faies won the “Favorite Category”. All of their work – along with 10 contenders and other participants’ photos – were displayed at Griya Santrian Gallery in Sanur.
