Belgian Belfius press award winners photojournalism 2013 known

On this website you can have a look at the winners for this year.

 

As you know I was one of the happy few being nominated but this year it was Yves Herman that won the € 2000 prize money with his series on policemen being covered in foam, put on them by angry firemen.

 

 

 

 

In the brochure that was printed for the event, the comment of the jury really touched my heart.

Straatpicknick
BRUSSEL DEZE WEEK
Een wilde asfaltpicknick voor de Beurs van Brussel moet de
aandacht vestigen op de noodzaak van een verkeersluw Brussel.
De fotograaf heeft deze boodschap van convivialiteit vertaald in
een serie foto’s die overlopen van poëzie. Door een doorgedreven
gebruik van zijn fisheye-lens resulteert dit in een reeks van
opmerkelijke topshots die de kijker het gevoel geeft zelf middenin
de picknick beland te zijn. Een fascinerende reeks.

 

A wild asphalt picnic for the Brussels Stock Exchange must
highlight the need for a traffic Brussels.
The photographer has this message of conviviality translated into
a series of photographs that overflow of poetry. Through the extensive
use of fisheye lens, this resulted in a series of
remarkable topshots which gives the viewer the feeling of being in the middle
of the picnic . A fascinating series.

 

It was a real pity that winner Yves Herman wasn’t there to pick up the price, but I had a great evening and was happy to talk to Johanna de Tessières, the other finalist.
