The Finalists

The Final Selection for the Paranormal Review Photography Competition

The hunt to find the photograph that best captures the ‘spirit’ of the paranormal continues.

The competition received a high number of exceptional photographs and final judging was immensely difficult.

A total of 16 were shortlisted out of 60 entrants and from these my expert panel selected the strongest images.

Out of the 16 shortlisted, 10 have made it through to the final.

They are, in alphabetical order:

Robert Ansley

Rebecca Belliveau

Jonathan Bright

Mark Caldon

Laverne Craven

Maria Kalfopoulou

Kon Markogiannis

Kai Mügge

Alan O’Regan

Lucius Werthmüller

The winner and runners-up will be announced on Friday, 1 September, at the Society for Psychical Research’s annual conference being held at the De Vere Horsley Estate, Leatherhead, Surrey, UK.

Look out for further announcements and full coverage of the competition in the Paranormal Review, the magazine of the Society for Psychical Research.
