  1. When photographers of a small country of 6 mill wins first, second and third prize of an international photo competition http://www.poyi.org/index.html#section
    Pictures of the Year International in the category of ”Newspaper Local Picture Story”

    It might say something about local cultures and local news outlets or it might say something about the current quality of press photography in a country.


     
  2. Anders, what did you think of the prize-winners?

    I thought the first prize (neonatal) was extremely well crafted, polished images, but totally formulaic and predictable. Kind of boring, really. I did like the second prize one (alternative teaching) quite a lot. Third prize, meh; okay but tending toward my criticism of the first prize winner. It is pandering to my expectations. I'm even more disappointed that these were chosen by what looks like a stellar panel of judges.
