Oslo, 24. februar: I dag ble det kjent at én norsk fotograf er blant de nominerte i verdens største fotokonkurranse, Sony World Photography Awards 2015.

Clas Kristensen går videre innenfor kategorien «Sport» i den profesjonelle konkurransen med sin bildeserie «Moon Landing». Bildene er plukket ut fra 173,444 innsendte bidrag fra 171 land – det høyeste antall bidrag i prisutdelingens historie og en økning på 24 prosent sammenliknet med fjoråret.

Som finalist i den profesjonelle klassen, vil Clas Kristensen bli vurdert for tittelen Professional Sport Photographer of the Year og konkurrere om den ærefulle tittelen L’Iris d’Or/ Photographer of the Year samt en pris på 25,000 dollar.

34 år gamle Clas Kristensen er frilansfotograf og lege. Han er selvlært innenfor fotografi, og har utallige ganger fått sine bilder publisert i snowboard-magasiner verden over. Hans fantastiske vintersportslige svart-hvitt-bildeserie er fotografert i Tromsø, hvor han også bor.

– Det er en stor ære å bli nominert. Spesielt når man vet at man konkurrerer mot så mange talentfulle profesjonelle fotografer fra hele verden, uttaler Clas Kristensen.

Alle vinnerne innenfor de profesjonelle kategoriene, samt vinnerne av den Åpne konkurransen, Ungdoms- og Studentkonkurransen og L’Iris d’Or vil bli annonsert på en gallaseremoni i London den 23. april. Fotografen som går av med tittelen Open Photographer of the Year vil også motta 5,000 dollar, og alle vinnerne vil motta det siste innen digitalfoto-utstyr fra Sony.

De nominerte bildene i konkurransen vil bli utstilt ved Somerset House i London fra 24. april – 10. mai som en del av Sony World Photography Awards 2015 Exhibition, og fotografene vil få sitt arbeid publisert i 2015-utgaven av Sony World Photography Awards-boken. Billetter er tilgjengelig på www.worldphoto.org/2015exhibition.
