2013 MACQUARIE PHOTOGRAPHY PRIZE
Chan Kwok Hung from Hong Kong is awarded the 2013 Macquarie Photography Prize and $10,000AUD.
Judge Luke Peterson's comments - "It was always going to be hard to choose a winner from such diverse subjects ranging from animals, people, landscapes and everything in between. For the winner, I chose a photo that accurately portrayed nature at its finest. 'Feed Me First' captures a beautiful moment between a mother and her children. The back light illuminating the stunning feathers, the shallow depth of field to separate the subjects from the background, the composition and timing of this photo all combine to produce an image that draws the eye. The patience and skill of the photographer are clearly seen in this wonderful photograph."
