The judges were voting for the prizewinners. For some works, the judges had heated discussions and decided the finalists by voting finally.


During the selection of prizewinners, Kuanxin Liu commended the submissions for the high quality and confessed that it’s a tough choice to reject anyone of pictures. He claimed that the BENRO CUP definitely promoted the development of photographic culture.





The judges had heated discussion on the shooting and post processing in terms of some photos and they also give their unique opinions for the moderation and balance to the relevance between photography and art. They thought many photos are not qualified as the prizewinners for the severely post process but they are still excellent in terms of art, because post process has becomes one new-born strength to promote the development of photography industry after all.
