Images Of the Month Dec - 2020

Postby Prashanth Sampagar » Sun Jan 03, 2021 7:04 pm

Dear Freinds,

The last month of one of the toughest years the mankind ever faced is over and we are here with our monthly picks. This month was also a very tough for the editorial team to pick one single IOM. This is the first time we have chosen THREE images as Images of the month. We felt each of these images are unique in their own way and are well deserving for the title of Image Of the Month.

We have a very simple process to choose monthly picks and IOMs. The editorial team shortlists the images based on creativity, artistic value, aesthetics, perspective, story it conveys, etc. Technical aspect though it's important, it's considered at the end. Once we have all the shortlistd images, the voting happens. The team votes based on ther view on each of the image and is anonymous. Once the voting is done a monthly call with the entire team takes place where merits of each and every image is being discussed. Lot of times the members of editorial team have fought for the images that they think deserve to be in the top of the list. And gladly each such opinion is respected and taken constructively by the rest of the members. We do not have any restriction on number of images to be selected for the monthly picks or even for IOM. There were months where we could not pick a single IOM, but this month you can see that we have three IOMs. We felt each image deserved to be the Image Of the Month. Three IOMs is a record for us and more to it is two of the images are from Anders Wahlund.

Winners of this month's Image of The Month are as below

Dear friends,

Yes, it was a tough year for all of us and hope the new year brings the new light.

Last couple of months were great here on CNP with some of the most creative and emotional images. We at editorial team had a fighting :) time during the process of monthly picks. However for all of us it was a thrilling, exciting moment. In fact it is not exaggeration to say it has helped us to forget of some of the difficulties Covid -19 disease brought upon us.

Congratulations to both the winners. Keep inspiring us.
