Meet the judges

David Avidor

David started his photographic journey in 1996 inspired by his craving to create art and capture life. Throughout his life, he has had the great fortune to experiment with many art forms, but photography touches his heart and feeds his soul like nothing else. He photographs many subjects, but by far, his greatest strength is children’s portraiture, which you’ve seen for the last two years in Safe & Sound’s first and second Pinwheel Pics contests as winning entries! David currently teaches photography to kids.
