“My Cape Town” competition winner
Cape Town Tourism is happy to announce that the winner of the “My Cape Town” competition is Sivan Miller, for his photograph entitled “Sea Point at a glance”.
The My Cape Town competition was launched in celebration of World Tourism Month and asked people to enter images that they thought epitomised Cape Town.
Many beautiful images poured in from many talented photographers, showing Cape Town in all its glory as an ideal location for photography.
The competition had 520 hopeful entrants, all vying for the coveted R15 000 prize money. This was narrowed down to only 20 photos by the Cape Town Tourism judges, and then put to a vote by the public.
The votes were reviewed and the most popular photo was Sivan Miller’s image of Sea Point.
Sivan says, “From the rocky shores of Sea Point to the top of Lion’s Head, Cape Town has it all.
“I chose to shoot this spot as it makes Cape Town appear as a little alcove which looks like it was taken out of a postcard. The light was perfect and so was the weather.
“Cape Town is my home and I am proud to live here!” he adds.
