In a spectacular showing, Jason and Justin Senft, of New Providence, American artists and identical twins have won "Best of Show" for an unprecedented second time in the Fédération Mondiale du Cirque’s annual international photography competition. Jason and Justin Senft’s idyllic “Norman Rockwell-esque” photograph features a talented circus elephant playfully painting a bright red heart onto an artist’s canvas while a circus clown looks on with amazement.

The Senft’s winning image, which portrays the contest theme “Circus: The Art of Happiness,” was selected by Federation Honorary President H.S.H. Princess Stephanie of Monaco from 12 finalists chosen by an international panel of judges. Incredibly, and setting a record, three additional photographs by the Senfts were also selected. Their photographs will be exhibited in January 2013 during the 37th Festival International du Cirque de Monte-Carlo in Monaco and at The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida. The Senft’s winning images will also be featured on the cover and within the Federation’s 2013 wall calendar.
