#LoveCapeTown Photo Competition: And the winner is…
The #LoveCapeTown Photo Competition winner is Naude Heunis for his photo titled "Our own seventh wonder," which is pictured above. Heunis, 25, lives in Stellenbosch and works in the film industry.
Heunis wins R10 000 and the right to say he took the photo that best depicts love for Cape Town, as chosen by members of the public who voted for 20 short-listed images. He is getting married next year and says the prize money will go toward the honeymoon.
He adds: "I feel amazing right now!! I'm so happy and feel extremely blessed to have won such an amazing prize. It was only made possible by all the people that voted and supported me the whole way."
Describing the image, he says: "This shot was made possible by my fiance Laura D'Amore's friend Richard Timmis, who was the pilot of the plane on the day when managed to get this shot. He would always try and share the experience of flying over Cape Town with all of his friends."
"A big thank you to Cape Town Tourism for creating such an awesome platform for photographers to showcase their work and also promote our beautiful city," says Heunis.
Votes were thoroughly audited to ensure the rules of the competition were followed.
