The Ultimate Story Contest Grand Prize Winner Announced


Please help us in congratulating photographer Gareth Rockliffe on his winning video ‘FGCU’s Mission’ in the Ultimate Story video contest.

Gareth has won a Panasonic LUMIX GH3 with a 20mm lens, $500 gift card to Profoto, a Colormunki photo color management calibrator, a Premium subscription to ProShow Web and his wining video is being published on Resource Magazine’s website.

Gareth created the video as part of a commercial assignment for Florida Gulf Coast University. The goal was to make a multimedia presentation the school could use on their website to promote their new sustainability programs. Gareth mixed still images, captions and video clips using ProShow to make this final piece.

“My wife and I are photographers who now find ourselves as multimedia producers. As the photographic world keeps changing the only way to survive is to grasp the latest technology and use it to keep your business growing and evolving,” says Gareth.

“There was an outstanding turnout for this contest which really shows the talent in our industry today. The convergence of stills, audio and video gives photographic artists the ability to tell a story in a whole new way. We’re really excited about the second contest coming up July 1st which is going to highlight some of the best in adventure and landscape photography,” says Skip Cohen.
