Grand Prize Contest Winner Announced!
by Dave Mobbs – January 21st, 2016
We’re delighted to reveal the Grand Prize winner of our global ‘Capture The Color’ contest who will receive a Wacom Cintiq® 27QHD Touch worth over $2,500.
Launched in June 2015, Capture the Color was a monthly photo competition on Facebook in which the public were invited to enter their best images reflecting each month’s PANTONE® color theme for the chance to win some great prizes. Each month there were five winners, based on popular vote, who had a prize choice of an i1Display Pro, ColorChecker Passport or ColorMunki Display, with an additional winner chosen by the X-Rite team for outstanding photography.
Following December’s competition all winning images throughout the months were judged by our Coloratti who selected this stunning image submitted by Witold Kaszkin from Poland as the grand prize winner. This was his entry for June’s PANTONE® color of the month: 17-5641 Emerald. The Coloratti felt that Witold’s photograph captured the intensity of color of the northern lights, creating an ethereal look against a stunning landscape.
Hearing of his win, Witold had this to say – “I am very proud that my picture was chosen and appreciated by the X-Rite Coloratti community of Professional photographers. It was a unique competition, and photos submitted for the contest were varied and high quality, so I’m really surprised getting the Grand Prize ! I am convinced that the Wacom Cintiq 27QHD Touch will be very useful in my work.”
The Coloratti nominations were very close with only a few votes separating the top 3. ‘Lighthouse’ by Rafal Majewski was a close 2nd place with this exceptional image. A great achievement.
Wojtek Lembryk’s ‘The Monk’ was voted in at 3rd place for its fantastic use of natural light.
