"When judging a photo prize, I am looking for something that I might not have seen before. This can be a subtle nuance or a spectacular revelation. Mainly I want to see something that is genuine and original.
I am interested in all genres and cross-fertilized projects, the key thing is for the work to be fresh and true to the originator and the subject.
The work should use the photographic medium best suited to the idea whether mobile phone, archive, installation, collage or collodion etc. — use what suits you and the project most effectively."
