Juror: Paulo Abrantes
Paulo Abrantes is 50, Portuguese, and lives near Aveiro City, Portugal. Mood and geometry are an integral part of his work. Both help him shape the abstraction in his street images. Paulo believes that when all the elements come together and the shot works like it should, the image can separate itself from its location and take on a life of its own.
Juror: Tracey Woods
Tracey Woods is the Director of Photography at The Luupe and a freelance creative consultant and producer. Prior to this she was the photo director at Essence Communications. An out-of-the-box thinker and astute problem solver, she has overseen projects ranging from celebrity portraiture, fashion and beauty, to reportage, travel, food and lifestyle photography for brands such as Mari by Marsai, EmblemHealth, Revlon, Verizon, Wiley Publishing as well as Ebony and InStyle Specials magazines.
