We awarded the 1st prize to Natalie Keyssar for her ability to makes use of complementary codes while taking advantage of the classic language as an inheritance. There is a great balance between form and content. Being delicate and strong at the same time, she brings us closer to Venezuela showing that life goes on while we follow the news. Natalie denotes aspects to improve, like all of us, but I think receiving this award is a good opportunity to support have the “lioness” telling the story, and not the hunter, as always.

Robin Alysha Clemens deserves the New Generation Prize as her photo series of Mexican people and their faiths manages to capture a feeling of transcendence you can often only experience in person. Her approach manages to navigate each person with zero judgment or bias and presents them in ways that honour each of their beliefs - something more than welcome and quite impressive for a photographer of her age. Ashleigh Kane, Judge

In Sirius, Anna Szkoda stages a hybrid story between fiction and reality, which once again challenges photography and its role. She is able to create a strong bond with the viewers, nourishing their curiosity and enchanting them like a distressing telephone tale. Her placid photographs explore the fantasy before a potential crime with a gaze towards the infinite saving grace of the stars. Walter Guadagnini, Fotografia Europea Artistic Director
