AACHEN, Germany, July 21, 2019–Terri Miller, the photographer and painter based in Southern California, has won the prestigious “Silver Camera” award for the best international equestrian photo of the year 2018.
The photo that shows dressage rider Anna Buffini and Wilton II at the West Coast Dressage Festival displays what the panel of judges described as “almost has a mystical effect.”
“Terri Miller’s photographs are almost like paintings,” the announcement said. “She plays with the light, takes them from unusual angles and often lends her pictures a touch of poetry.”
Terri, who lives in San Ramos, is not only an excellent photographer but also a passionate painter. She is also a rider though she hardly gets the chance to sit on a horse.
More than 100 photos were submitted this year by photographers from all over the world. The jury comprised show jumpers Janika Sprunger of Switzerland and Henrik von Eckermann of Sweden; French photographer Eric Knoll; Andreas Müller, managing director, Medienhaus Aachen, Germany, and the Aachen Chairman and CHIO Show Director Frank Kemperman of the Netherlands. The panel nominated the best three photographs.
The photo by Terri was the unanimous choice of the panel.
Second place went to French photographer Christophe Bricot with his picture of Henrik von Eckermann “flying” over the Rolex obstacles with Castello during the 2018 CHIO Aachen. Third place also went to American Ashley Neuhof who captured Simone Blum with her successful horse, Alice, celebrating her individual gold medal triumph at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina.
The prize was presented on Saturday evening by the ALRV Supervisory Board Member, Wolfgang ‘Tim’ Hammer. The winner received €2,500 (US$2,800), second place €1,000 (US$1,120) and third place €500 (US$560).
