Lulu Castagnette follow-up

First of all, thank you all and congrats for all your entries on the contest ( 215 videos!) We met with the client yesterday and a shortlist is in the works, the results should be annouced the first week of March. To give you some feedback on the videos, you have simply surpassed yourselves in terms of quality. Some of our regulars have delivered their most beautiful work yet! BUT, because there is a BUT, the vast majority of the videos did not respond to the brief, which specified making a VIRAL video... and we received tons of ads, inspirational, and institutional videos instead - but in the end only about fifteen potentially viral. As a reminder for future contests, a viral video is one that is so funny or unexpected that you immediatly want to forward it to all your friends. To be continued in March, stay tuned... ;-)

Indonesia Photo Challenge Winner Announced

By Amelia Apsari on January 27, 2009 06:47 Products And Features 0

The overwhelming response to Indonesia Photo Challenge was truly heartening. The Eyeka Asia team and the judges had a difficult task to accomplish – selecting the winner among received entries of high production value.  We garnered a total of 1,688 qualified photos! After much deliberation, all the judges has selected Gary, coming from Bojonegoro, a small town in Java Island, as the winner of Indonesia Photo Challenge.
Berikut ini adalah komentar dari dewan juri dan CEO Eyeka Asia mengenai Eyeka Indonesia Photo Challenge: Arbain Rambey (Kompas) Komentar soal lomba: Lomba Foto Fashion dan Beauty yang digelar Eyeka adalah hal baru. Selama ini lomba foto yang ada hanya meliputi foto-foto lanskap, tematis dan human interest saja. Terakhir kali lomba foto fashion untuk umum kalau saya tidak salah ingat adalah tahun 1994. Itu pun hanya fashion. Sedangkan foto beauty jarang dipertandingkan untuk umum. Secara umum, kehadiran eyeka memberi penyegaran dalam dunia fotografi di Indonesia. Komentar soal pemenang: Foto pemenang dalam lomba eyeka kali ini sejak awal memang menyita perhatian juri karena memang berbeda dengan foto lainnya yang sangat "generik". Pengaruh internet membawa dampak kepada pemahaman foto secara umum. Siapa pun banyak belajar dari internet, sehingga di bawah sadar foto-foto karya mereka sama dengan yang beredar di internet. Pada sebagian besar foto yang masuk, juri merasa tidak melihat foto yang baru. Foto pemenang ini sangat punya kepribadian, sangat Indonesia baik wajah model, asesori maupun latar belakangnya yang rumah papan yang dicat kapur. Foto pemenang ini makin menggembirakan karena pemenangnya bukanlah muka lama yang biasanya memenangkan aneka lomba foto di Indonesia. Darwis Triadi Komentar soal lomba: Saya sangat mendukung sekali kegiatan Eyeka Indonesia Photo Challenge ini karena lomba ini membawa dampak yang sangat positif untuk perkembangan dunia fotografi di Indonesia. Diharapkan kompetisi seperti ini bisa dilakukan secara periodik sehingga para fotografer  indonesia bisa lebih berprestasi lagi. Menurut saya, hasil karya yang dikirim kemarin telah memenuhi ekspektasi. Tetapi masih banyak hasil karya  yang manipulasi digital-nya terlalu kental. Untuk kompetisi berikutnya, diharapkan fotografi kembali ke dasar lagi dan jangan banyak menggunakan banyak tahapan digital imaging dalam setiap karya foto. Komentar soal pemenang: Secara garis besar, ada 3 poin kenapa saya memilih hasil karya Gary sebagai pemenang: - Sesuatu yang sangat simple dan natural, di mana tidak menggunakan banyak tahapan digital imaging. - Mempunyai formula pencahayaan yang masih sangat kental di dalam fotografi. - Fotografi yang dihasilkan mempunyai warna Indonesia yang sangat kuat.  Karena selain teknik dan komposisi, kita juga mencari sesuatu karakter Indonesia yang kuat. Jerry Aurum Komentar soal lomba: “Saya sangat terkesan dengan tingginya kualitas foto yang diperlombakan. Terbukti Indonesia memang penuh dengan orang-orang kreatif bertalenta. Eyeka harus lebih aktif lagi menjembatani orang-orang muda berbakati ni dengan pusat-pusat industri dunia melalui kegiatan seperti ini” Komentar soal pemenang: “Foto Gary mempunyai komposisi yang bagus, model berwajah unik, detail fashion yang jelas, pose sempurna dan yang paling penting, foto ini punya “soul”, sebuah karakter. Foto ini sudah saya jagokan dari babak awal”. Alexandre Olmedo – CEO Eyeka Asia The result of the campaign was very impressive in terms of quality, participation & expression of the Indonesian soul. I felt honoured to be surrounded by Arbain Rambey, Darwis Triadi & Jerry Aurum, who are highly recognized photographers, as the selection of the winner was not an easy choice among the 1,688 qualified photography. With the selection of Gilroy Yoewono from Bojonegoro, Eyeka demonstrates his commitment to help creative talents get recognized & rewarded for their contribution. Indonesian is the Eyeka’s biggest & most talented community of creative talents so we look forward to seeing more creative talents being recognized outside of Indonesia. Eyekasian, Thank you for all your participation and please join us in congratulating the winner!
