Vantaan Fotokerho and Vantaa Environment Centre arranged a photo exhibition in honor of the 2019 bug theme year, and it received almost 500 works from enthusiastic participants.
Altogether 116 photos were taken of the favorite subject, butterflies. The second biggest number of photos—in all, 78 photos—were shot of beetles. Jukka Ahde's photo of a banded demoiselle won the digital series, whereas the winner of the Instagram series is a fly veiled with dewdrops (photographer: Marjo Kamila). Both series also awarded the second and third best photos. The digital series also granted an honorary reward, and the Instagram series awarded the photo that received the biggest number of likes.
The winning photos were praised for, among others, their originality, resolution, and colors. In general, the most successful photos were of dragonflies as well as those where water elements were strongly present.
Photos of the competition are on exhibit:
