International Photography Contest Honours Local Photographer   Print  E-mail 
Submitted by Artissa Administrator  

062 - Beach ShopOnly a few months after being awarded the "International Press & PR Photographer of the Year" recognition from the SWPP/BPPA, photographic artist Sergio Muscat was presented with the 3rd Annual Photography Masters Cup Nominee Award in the category of Fine Art at a prestigious live online Winners and Nomination Ceremony presented by International Colour Awards to recognize excellence in colour photography.

The International Colour Awards Photography Masters Cup is the leading international award honouring excellence in colour photography. This celebrated event shines a spotlight on the best professional and non-professional photographers worldwide and honours the finest images with the highest achievements in colour photography.

Thousands of images were received from ninety-two countries. The nominated photographers were selected by a who's who Judging Panel from the international photography community, including Christie's, National Geographic, Saatchi & Saatchi, Fox Broadcasting Company and Vogue Magazine. The panel reviewed the images online over an eight-week period and the image "Beach Shop" received a high percentage of votes overall within the Fine Art category.

Sergio Muscat is a young photographer whose work mainly revolves around social themes, often focussing on the interaction between humans and their environment. He is fascinated by nature, and the eternal struggle for a balance. "Sergio’s colour bursts are bold, challenging and formidable. ‘Beach Shop’ is a good example of how Sergio jolts our attention through impact in projecting the obvious and ordinary, the simple and plain as imposing and important," writes E.V. Borg in his 2008 essay ‘Nature’s Ways’.

The 3rd Annual Winners Gallery may be viewed online at Sergio’s work may be viewed on his website at
