Announcing the winners
Congratulations to the winners and indeed to everyone who participated in this year's competition!
The Judging Panel reviewed thousands of photos - even more than in 2018. The high standard of contributions made it really hard to choose the winners.
The winning photographers will each receive a Diploma. These will be presented during the forthcoming International Grand Chapitre & AGM in Paris, or will be mailed if necessary.
Unfortunately some social media sites changed their policy regarding an interface with third parties. Whilst we had no alternative but to accept this, for World Chaîne Day this meant that the hashtags no longer comprehensively collected all the incoming material. Therefore we were not able to see everything and as a result the selection of winners is based on material we had available. I sincerely apologise for this. It was something entirely outside of our control. For next year we shall need to rethink the principles.
Thanks again to all the participants
On behalf of the Committee and Judges I say a big thank you to you all. Keep up the enthusiasm for World Chaîne Day and of course keep raising the bar with the quality and content of the photos taken during the events held around the world.
