Maude Bardet- 1st Prize – $1000
“Goat auctions in Nizwa” – Oman
Feedback from Richard Kalvar: ” A beautiful moment, with a complex structure. The photographer has succeeded in capturing a scene full of movement, with every element in place. The flow of men and animals creates a kind of dance. The dark background, aided by the shooting angle from below, makes the people stand out. And the photographer has managed to disappear, unnoticed by the participants.”
MithailAfrige Chowdhury– 2nd Prize – $600
“The Eyes” – Dhaka, Bangladesh
Feedback from Richard Kalvar: “A simple image, where all the lines and the reduced depth of field bring the viewer’s eye to that of the subject, the most important place in the picture. We’re in a mysterious scene. Why is this partly hidden man looking at us like that, with anger, or fear, or curiosity? And is his head turned to the left or to the right?”
Francesco Gioia– 3rd Prize – $400
“Red girl” – Oxford Street, London, UK
Feedback from The Independent Photographer Editors: “Gioia’s perfectly -timed, color-punctuated shot resonates with palpable atmosphere and embodies the forthright, spontaneous approach made famous by some of the genre’s most renowned practitioners, namely Martin Parr, Bruce Gilden and Tom wood.”
