Watch Photo Awards The first winner
The very first winner of the international Watch Photo Awards has just won a weekend for two at the 5-star Grand Hotel Kempinski in Geneva.
The Watch Photo Awards, which were launched in the spring, reward the best watch photos submitted on a different theme every month, from May to October 2018. In May, the theme was “Blue”. The WPA jury began by selecting ten photos, according to the criteria of creativity, relevance to the theme and technical proficiency. These ten photos were published by the WPA’s media partners. The public then voted for the best of those ten, and a photograph by Christophe Musy was chosen. He, along with the authors of the other nine shortlisted photos, will be invited to the preview of the WPA exhibition at Geneva’s Museum of Art and History at the beginning of November, where the sixty photos on the six monthly themes will go on display. Watch-loving fans will be pleased to learn that the WPA exhibition takes place during the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.

The shortlisted photos on the theme “Blue” also appear in the XXL special issue of GMT Magazine.
The theme for June was sport. The jury has selected the top ten, and the public have until 9 July to vote for their favourite. The topical theme for July is holidays, so get your cameras out!
