Congratulations to Jochem Herremans of Antwerp, Beligum, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest.



Congratulations to Jochem Herremans, of Antwerp, Belgium, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Jochem is a first time winner to our contest; he follows last week’s winner Matt Harvey .

If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to our our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took earlier than the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves a facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Tuesday to Monday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Friday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Tuesday.

1Now here’s more from Jochem.

Title of photo: Dreaming of Pinguins

Equipment: Nikon D3200, with a Sigma 17.0-70.0 mm lens

Tell us more about your photo: I live in Antwerp a city located in Belgium. I’m 35 and I have 3 children.The photo was taken during an event called ‘China Lights’. It is a beautiful event located in the local zoo where Chinese artists made a fairy tale-like paradise with illuminated and moving animals. The girl in the photo with the white cap is my daughter. She loves penguins! And she was blown away with the illuminated ones. She just stood there for about 5 minutes, all excited! In the background you have the illuminated penguins. On the left you have some light flowers. I tried to get her emotions in the photo.
