The Uruma Jikan 24 Instagram Photo Contest collected photos from entrants of 24 Uruma scenes.
Making use of Instagram, over 648 photos were posted for the contest. From these entries,
winners were chosen for each scene as well as an overall Grand Prix (grand prize winner).
The 24 scenes used for the contest included the ruins of Katsuren Castle (a UNESCO World Heritage Site),
a driving spot along the Mid-Sea Road, and themed shots from everyday Uruma life such as the “morning sun” and “evening scenery.”
For the Grand Prix, judges selected a photo of the Mid-Sea Road by user “gushiken.74”,
praising it for “skillfully capturing the emotion of wanting to snap a photo” of such beautiful scenery.
User “gushiken.74” adds their own comment:
“This is the Uruma that I pass every morning and evening when I drop off and pick up my daughter.
The skies and winds have shown us many different scenes, as if beckoning us to ‘come, come closer.
’ Anywhere you stop your car in Uruma, the scenery will be beautiful and you will feel a relax, gentle calm.”
Below are a few other shots that won in their categories.
This is the ruins of Katsuren Castle. Judges praised it for its “dynamic landscape. You can even feel the weight of the history.”
This contest featured 24 scenes,
but there are still many more “moving scenes” to be found in Uruma. If you find one, try to capture it on camera.
All of the winning photos can be found on the site below. Thank you for all of your submissions!http://www.urumajikan.com/uruma24_kekka/
