Even though this year was a tumultuous one, the jury panel has seen exceptional creativity and a truly stunning representation of personal stories. Through their work, the photography community shows the power of images in shaping how we see the world.
BIFA is once again proud to support and honour these photographers who have such important stories to share through their images, giving us a window to the world through their lenses.
Photographer of the Year, Eduardo Lopez Moreno let viewers take a glimpse into a small town in Mexico where a clash between two drug gangs resulted in an accidental murder (pictured on top).
In The Wrong Place At The Wrong Time – Accidental Victim of Drug Gangs is the photograph series that grasps the shocking fact that just sitting on a bench peacefully can be dangerous in some areas of the world.
Sabrina Komár’s Monologue series captures the inner conflicts that everyone has within themselves:
“My monologue seems to have a lot of characters, and yet it doesn’t. Because it’s all me, and yet it’s not. I am in constant conflict and struggle with myself. But which character is the real one, where am I, which one am I? I am looking for the answer to this with my cyanotypes.”
The full list of 1st and 2nd place Category Winners, and Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners in each of the competition’s categories, and Honorable Mentions from across both professional and amateur entries can be viewed on the BIFA website Winners Page.
