Patrick Martens wins final TV program 'Het Perfecte Plaatje'

Patrick Martens, one of the two remaining finalists in ‘Het Perfecte Plaatje’ (The Perfect Picture), won the final of this Dutch TV program on RTL4. This was shown in the festive final episode that aired on Wednesday, December 22nd, on RTL4. This brought to an end the sixth season of the show, in which the double final episodes were recorded on Bonaire. Martens competed against Frits Sissing in the final. As the winner of ‘Het Perfecte Plaatje’, Martens will soon receive a coverage story in the Dutch edition of the National Geographic Magazine featuring his photo series ‘ongerept Bonaire’ (pristine Bonaire). In total, over 2 million viewers have watched both episodes of ‘Het Perfecte Plaatje’ featuring Bonaire.

In the second part of the final broadcast of ‘Het Perfecte Plaatje’, the finalists received various photography assignments that had to be performed throughout the island. Silhouette photographs were taken during the sunset, both men took swimsuit photographs at photogenic locations, and in a triptych, the pristine nature of Bonaire was recorded above as well as underwater for instance at Washington Slagbaai National Park and Klein Bonaire.

During the filming for the second final episode of ‘Het Perfecte Plaatje’, the finalists stayed at Villa Terrace 2, made available through QVillas. The recordings on Bonaire were also made possible by means of sponsorships from Tourism Corporation Bonaire (TCB), accommodation partner Delfins Beach Resort, and airline company KLM. TCB thanks all other island partners that collaborated and otherwise participated in the recordings during filming of ‘Het Perfecte Plaatje’ on Bonaire.
