MPA/OlloClip Contest


The winner of the MPA/Olloclip contest by unanimous vote is…DAREDEVIL by Melissa Vincent – Congrats Melissa you are the proud new owner of an olloclip!!!


The Winner – Daredevil by Melissa Vincent

The jury feels strongly that DAREDEVIL is a wonderful example of a good idea well-executed. The image is whimsical, full of freedom, and technically excellent. The picture certainly adheres to the contest theme and tells a story about a machine that “goes” but it cuts even deeper in our view. DAREDEVIL embodies the inevitability that children also must one day seek their own way, that indeed, children too become THINGS THAT GO and we will wave goodbye as they metaphorically run from the cover of our wings. We cheer them on their way even as we wish they would just stay little forever…Well done Melissa and well deserved.
