Noelle Mason’s work becomes particularly relevant during this worldwide crisis that has fundamentally changed the way documentary photography can be conducted in movement and access. Her work transcends the traditional sphere of access, ironically utilizing the invasive technology of US Border Patrol and commercial security sites and subverting it into a critique. Her visual treatment and interventions turn a work that could be clinical - x-rays - into an intimate commentary on the human condition and where we are as a society today. Tanya Habjouqa, Judge, on Noelle Mason’s X-Ray Vision vs. Invisibility

The jurors were impressed with the consistency and visual language adopted by the young 24-year old Ghanian photographer David Nana Opoku Ansah. His visual references whilst obvious do not suffocate his creativity. His adoption of critical design aesthetics with objects of virtue staged within his portraits add a layer of wistfulness and nostalgia to the coming of age narrative in his native country. We are confident that David is a photographer to watch for the future. Azu Nwagbogu, Judge, on David Nana Opoku Ansah’s Area Boys & Brotherhood
