Malta International Photo Award Spring 2019
The 2nd Edition of the Malta International Photo Award focused on 3 main categories including Sport, Technology and Wildlife.
KA CHON CHIANG
Directly from the IBF Silk Road Championships held in Macau, photographer Ka Chon Chiang captured the soul of boxing - dedication, perseverance and courage. ‘Left Blow’ is a perfectly positioned shot, closely showcasing what goes on in the ring and the emotions it brings with it.
'It's a showtime' snaps perfectly the grandeur of sports and all the emotions it brings forth. With a colourful explosion serving as a background for this motorsport participant in the the Mikkali Finnish Rally Championship, Hannu managed to capture the exact moment the biker propelled into a sky full of light. The flying athlete and the red tinted sky are a perfect symbol of how sport can provide incredibly breathtaking and emotional moments for both the athlete and all the spectators.
'Noooooo!' by Domenic Aquilina snatched the third place in the Sports category in the MIPA Spring 2019 competition.
This unique shot of legendary Italian goalkeeper Gigi Buffon and English referee Michael Olivier in the midst of a heated argument shows us the other side of sport, where adrenaline, disappointment and pride kick in.
Taken during a Champions League quarter-final in the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in 2018, all football fans will definitely recall this Real Madrid vs Juventus match where Juventus’ incredible comeback was cut short after the referee’s decision to award a penalty to Real Madrid during injury time, marking yet another early exit for Juventus from the biggest European club football competition.
Domenic’s years of experience as a Maltese photojournalist and correspondent have seen him cover major key sporting events across the world.
