The ‘Festival Bahari 2011’ Photo Competition – street photography

Hi guys,

The other day I was invited to a photo competition held by the local government of Jakarta province, which was also to promote the islands in the north of Jakarta. The whole event was held from the 1st till 3rd of July, 2011. Everything was very well organized, it was fun and happy for everyone.

We scouted around 6 islands (Onrust island, Rambut island, Pramuka island, Kelapa Dua island, Panggang island, & Karya island) in 2 days this year, and we were given only 1 hour on each islands. It was not easy, though.

There were 2 themes this year, Landscape and Human Interest. I managed to get a total of 17 decent shots, 3 for landscape and 14 for human interest.

The winners will be announced on the 16th of July 2011. And, the trophies will be given and handed to the winners by the governor of Jakarta at the Pramuka island.

Here’s some of the photos I took on the 2nd & 3rd July, 2011.

  1. Wonderful pictures! I tried to pick a favourite but it was impossible. Good luck!!! I hope you win. Sounds like you had a good time too. I would love to try something like that!

    • Thank you so much for the wish. It was very fun, being somewhere new with lots of eyes staring at you, then, again, sometimes you have to make yourself invisible when taking their pictures. It’s fun!
