Valentine de Villemeur – 2nd place. Prize – $600

“Boy Scouts” – Paris, France. “I was walking around Paris when I heard from far away some kids chatting and laughing. I saw that it was a group of scout kids and I knew that there was an interesting shot there. So, I placed myself in the middle of the street so that they were facing me. All of a sudden, one kid takes his friend by the shoulder and shouts “look over there!” and I quickly took the shot as he was raising his arm to point at something behind me.”

Francesco Gioia – 3rd place. Prize – $400

“Hand and Cigarette” – Leicester Square, London, UK.

Brad Jones– Finalist

“A Fragile Utopia 72”. “I began A Fragile Utopia with the belief that I was creating a project where I would document my daily life in Brooklyn. Understanding at the time that this city was a refuge for me culturally and politically as I grew up in a rural small town. I’ve come to realize that A Fragile Utopia is instead a construction of a world that I want to see in my mind.”

Andreea Badiu-Slabu – Finalist

“People of Paris” – Paris, France. “I imagine he’s lived in Paris most of his life. How many times has he been photographed?! I want to guess not many. But now there’s at least one.”

Anna Biret – Finalist

“Look to the Future” – India. “I was at the bus station, and this girl on her way to school caught my attention. She had a very intriguing personality, a form of pride and modernity, which is in direct contrast to the reality of living in India.”

Dovlet Annayev – Finalist

“Gel Doy” – Berlin, Germany. A night shot was taken on a snowy winter night on the streets of Berlin, Germany.⁠
