The Society of International Travel and Tourism Photographers has announced an image taken at the Louvre in Paris as the winner of their annual photographic competition.

Unni Brekke’s
image (above) titled ‘At the Gallery’ was chosen over more than 300 other
entries to the competition.

The theme of
this year’s competition was ‘People Watching.’ The organisation said it was looking
for images that ‘define the moments that our lenses capture every day… from
moments of joy to scenes of happiness, sadness and destitution.’


Unni, who hails
from Loddefjord in Norway, has earned himself 12 months membership to the
Society. Runners-up Debashis Mukerjee from India and Alexandros Dalkos from
Greece have both won 6 months membership. Eleven other entries were highly
commended.
