A real photo wins an AI image competition

Artist Miles Astrey won the 1839 Awards color photography contest in the category of images created using artificial intelligence. However, he deceived both the professional jury and the audience—the photograph turned out to be real.

Astrey’s work titled “Flamingo” was shortlisted by the jury and subsequently won two prizes: one from the audience and one from the jury. After the author confessed that the image was real, the work was disqualified. Nevertheless, Lily Fireman, director of the 1839 Awards, appreciated the artist’s statement and expressed hope that it would help raise awareness about the issue of AI in art.

Miles was inspired by cases where generated photos made their way into real photography contests and won prizes. So, he turned the story around by confirming that real art still maintains its relevance.

And if you’re wondering where the flamingo’s head is: the head is there; the bird is simply curled up, scratching its belly.
