fun in amsterdam _ L.D. Steinmetz
Ede _ Netherlands
City life in Amsterdam

Best theme photo
Jury: Edwin Becker, head curator of exhibitions at the Van Gogh Museum
Prize: I Amsterdam City Card for 3 days and the catalogue of the exhibition

Edwin Becker: "The response on this occasion was overwhelming, but only a handful of photographers managed to capture that unique city feeling and the surprising city life (and particularly the liveliness) of Amsterdam. The vast majority of the enormous number of photographs were great shots of houses, street views and romantic bikes. But in this shot, I found an original joie-de-vivre, the humour and comfort of friends spending time together. The expressions of the different people - one laughing ebulliently, another looking into the lens with a slightly timid expression - give their characters a sense of concrete individuality. And there is a typical Amsterdam feel in the day-to-day atmosphere in combination with a trace of bold absurdity."

The contest is finished!

The exhibition Snapshot. Painters and photography, 1888-1915  in the Van Gogh Museum shows snapshots of painters, who experimented with photography towards the end of the 19th century. They took thousands of snapshots, at home or in the city. And now, in the early 21st century, we're still clicking away.
