Jacarandainyourpocket2022 introduces two photo competition categories

more than a year ago
With less than a week to go, we have a big announcement about the #Jacarandainyourpocket2022 photo competition. By popular demand, we are splitting the judging into two categories: Professional (judged by industry heavyweights) and People’s Choice (judged by our readers).

The professional winners will be selected by an esteemed judging panel for first, second, third and fourth prizes from our partners voco Johannesburg Rosebank, The Tyrwhitt Rosebank, Radisson RED Rosebank and The Playground Market. Let’s meet the judges:
From left to right: Siphiwe Mhlambi, Brett Rubin, Vincent Zondo

Siphiwe Mhlambi

Multiple award-winning photographer and founder of African Skies Media, Siphiwe Mhlambi has captured the history of South Africa through his unique visual reporting for 30 years by encompassing documentary, portraiture and editorial work. In 2020, he was shortlisted as one of the Global Top 30 Jazz Photographers of the Year.

Brett Rubin

Photographer and visual artist Brett Rubin explores the notions of portraiture and landscape, utilising various art historical methods and references, while refining contemporary perceptions of the medium. A central focus for Rubin is an interest in the deconstruction of landscape, the histories that have shaped it and the way the figure traverses it in a post-colonial and post-modern context.

Vincent Zondo

Group strategy director at DNA Brand Architects, Vincent Zondo sparks commercial brand conversations through creativity, art and lifestyle. Vincent is ex-editor of Wanted and GQ.
