ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!
ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE WINNER OF WBTPA'S BEST PICTURE OF THE YEAR AWARD 2017!

A little speech is appropriate here I guess.
The WBTPA, or World Best Top Photographer Association for newbies, is like Aladdin's lamp, anything we wish for is just there. We are not waiting for miracles to happen, we make them happen.

Our last wish, the existence of a prestigious Best Picture of the Year Award, could be successfully established thanks to the sponsoring by Terry Bixler and the kind volunteering efforts of the jury members.
Thank you, +Alberto Romano +Alexander Tarasenkov +Antonio Mormando +Jack Stepanyan +Jerzy A. Witek +Marina Versaci +Peter Nadort +Rinus Bakker +Stefano Ruzzini +Terry Bixler +Eric Drumm, you did an amazing job!

We are all winners, in the first place because we are members of this amazing group, but also photographically spoken we are producing tons of remarkable works. We all deserve recognition equally. I thank you for being a member and submitting your work to our website. Selecting just 1 image, deserving Terry Bixler's WBTPA Best Picture of the Year Award, is a difficult task which I as chairman of the jury have experienced as a great responsibility. Once more I want to stress that we did not select the best photographer neither that the chosen image is in anyway a negative statement about the others. I feel lucky to be able to rely on the verdict of the respected members of the jury and I completely second the unambiguous choice they have made for WBTPA's Best Picture of the Year.

Congratulation go to +Alex James +Alexander Tarasenkov +Antoine Climent +Chris Lord +Detlef Reich +Eric Drumm +Evi Verstraeten +Detlef Reich +George Fletcher +George Fletcher +Hedi Meinel +Igor Schevchenko +Jean Marc Deltombe +Jerzy A. Witek +Joan Munford +Jörg Kastowsky +Kamil Dolny +Kenny Jones +Luciano Cruz +Ludwig Riml +Maciej Markiewicz +Matvey Z +Mike Reichardt +Rick Schwartz +rodrigue lopez +geoffrey lyder +Werner Hofmann for having made it to the final choice and share a 4th place, to +Rob Tilley +José Manuel Santos for sharing the third place by collecting 2 votes, to +Pat Kennedy Corlin for holding the second place by collecting 3 votes and the €500 Euro award goes to Ludwig Riml by collecting 6 votes out of 11.

Moreover I want to mention that +Alexander Tarasenkov and +George Fletcher were in the final with 4 images, +Rob Tilley and +Detlef Reich and +Eric Drumm with 3 images, +Evi Verstraeten and +Matvey Z and +Ludwig Riml and +Kamil Dolny with 2 images.


Bravo to all of you!
