Congratulation to the 3 laureates.
Considering the number of photographs received in the excellent diptychs collection « Moudjahidate » by Nadja Makhlouf, the jury decided to award her a special distinction and to class her work in a distinct category. The jury and the FFMed’s staff congratulate her for her high quality work, which gathers old and contemporary portraits of several women who worked during the Algeria’s independance war. It shows the ways these women contributed to change the world.
Like every year, our staff chose to highlight a firm favorite photo. This is why we attribute a firm favourite mention to « Finish line », by Ahmed Hamed (Egypt). We were taken with the will of this little girl running a marathon.
Our warm thanks to the jury’s member, for their involvement, opinions and the time they spent in this competition:
Estelle Brack (iReMMO), Caroline Flepp (50/50 The women / men equality’s magazine), Pierre-Yves Gimenez, Natacha Henry, Catalina Martin-Chico, Marie-Paule Nègre, Philippe Sérénon (mediterranean photography festival Photomed) and Dominique Vidal (iReMMO).
