To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts in 2014, a worldwide photography competition showcasing vivid memories and experiences at Banyan Tree has culminated with over 3,000 photos being submitted by past guests. Three winners were chosen by an expert judging panel, and these, along with 17 other short-listed photos, will join a global travelling photography exhibition, capturing the essence of Banyan Tree and its milestone anniversary for all to enjoy.
Judging the photography competition was Paul Goldstein, the international, award-winning photographer, writer and presenter; Samuel Nugroho, a renowned photographer in Asia for hotel and resort imagery; and Richard Maclean, Creative Director at publishing firm, Novus Media in Singapore and photo editor of Under The Banyan Tree magazine. Past and current guests of Banyan Tree and its sister brand, Angsana Hotels & Resorts, were invited to share their memories on film, portraying people and culture, natural landscapes or a spontaneous snapshot taken at one of the properties over the last 20 years.
Judged on creativity, photographic quality and authenticity, the top 20 photos chosen by the judges presented a range of experiences and memories across the portfolio of Banyan Tree and Angsana destinations worldwide.
