The Kolor Panobook, an hymn to panoramic photography
The Kolor Panobook is the world’s biggest contest of panoramic photography leading to the publication of a beautiful hardcover book! Hundreds of amateur and professional photographers join this contest every year for a chance to be published into the book and maybe become Kolor’s panoramic photographer of the year.
The Panobook 2016 depicts the beauty that surrounds us, from touristy areas to the most remote places. Perfectly mastered techniques, to new innovative styles, with hidden photographers revealing their talents; combining self-portrait with panorama.
It reflects the evolution of our world and the vestiges of our shared history. Above all, it reveals the different aesthetics and feelings that drive each of us. We thank our jury warmly for their artistic appreciation and expertise in making a selection of the best photographs.
” I was born photographer. I will die photographer. And I think my slogan from the 80’s still rings true today. It’s not WHAT you shoot. It’s the WAY you shoot. ”
Ayrton is a Brazilian photographer. He has shot many photos for various magazines, from fashion to advertising, from sports to documentaries. He specialized in panoramas in the ‘90s.
Editor-in-chief since 2001, Renaud Labracherie created in 2006 the website Focus Numérique to make up for the lack of French technical literature on photography, on the web.
Over the last several years, the magazine has become the reference for any photography enthusiast wanting to keep up to date on a constantly growing sector and discovering new techniques and new talents.
Stefano Belli is the founder and editor of the magazine Tutto Digitale, Italy’s leading publication about digital photo & video.
” I am proud to be one of the three judges of the 2016 contest and I am looking forward to see thousands of stunning pictures in the quest of the best of the best. “
