‘Colouring water’ – a photograph by Michael Angelo Richardson from the Netherlands – won the top prize in the Sentinel-2 ‘Colour vision’ photo competition. It was selected by a panel of judges for its variety of colours while portraying Sentinel-2 application areas such as forest and inland water.
Michael Angelo will receive a trip to ESOC, ESA’s operations centre in Darmstadt, Germany, as a guest at the VIP event on the night of the Sentinel-2A launch.
With about 400 entries to the competition, the judges’ decision was not easy. Four runners-up were selected for their photographs showing a close-up of a leaf, agricultural fields and an abstract interpretation of Sentinel-2’s ‘colour vision’ capabilities.
This image gallery also includes seven honourable mentions.
We thank everyone who participated, and be sure to follow the progress of the Sentinel-2 mission as it is readied for launch!
