Damon Winter is the winner of the latest black and white photo competition by online platform www.i-shot-it.com. The 2009 Pulitzer Prize winner now stands to receive a monetary prize of around $ 20,000 as well as a Leica Monochrom worth $ 8,000.
Jury members Birgit Krippner and Thorsten Overgaard praised the image's multi-layered content, describing its composition as a 'symphony for the eye'. Another entry by the photographer, depicting US President Barack Obama in the rain, was honoured with a 'Mark of Excellence'. Commenting on his winning image, Winter said "I’m so grateful this photo was chosen. It was one of my toughest days as a photographer and it is one of my favourite images."
