The Wushu Herald is proud to announce the results of its very first Chinese New Year Photo Competition 2018. We were pleased to receive entries from various sources that show-cased and captured the essence of Wushu and Tai Chi performance and practice in a Chinese New Year setting.
Congratulations go to first prize winner – Wilson Lo, the principal of Yut Hung Kung Fu Academy, Canberra, with their powerful and dramatic shot of two leaping Wushu students being watched by a fascinated crowd in a festive backdrop of CNY decorations and red lanterns. As one of the judges noted, “this one ticks all the boxes of the photo competition criteria and the photo also has a powerful Wushu impact”.
Second place goes to Gerard Zimmerman who photographed the colourful Sword performance by the Wushu & Tai Chi NSW group in Chatswood.
‘Tai Chi Rabbits in Action’, a quirky magical shot of “lantern rabbits” in a Tai Chi pose, photographed at Circular Quay, Sydney by Josephine Chow, came in third in the competition.
Winners will be awarded cash prizes and all short-listed participants will be offered a free membership for a year.
We, at the Wushu Herald, hope that you will all continue to support and participate in this photographic CNY event in future years to come. With the success of this year’s competition which is supported by the Wushu Council Australia, we expect it to be even bigger and better next year.
