Photocrowd, a site for photographers, has summed up the results of the first ironic competition Potato Photographer of the Year, for participation in which it was necessary to "uniquely portray potatoes through the art of photography," writes TJournal.
The winner was Ray Spence, who photographed a sprouted potato tuber being sheared. The finalist received a Fujifilm XA-7 camera, a year of membership in the British photographic society Royal Photographic Society, a workshop with contest organizer Benedict Brian and three years of subscription to Photocrowd.
To apply for the competition, you had to pay five euros. All donations went to the Trussell Trust, which provides food to the underprivileged in the UK.
