11th Pollux Awards | Winner. Annette Bonnier, ‘Vanishing Identities’
“Indigenous Tribes in the Southern Omo Valley of Ethiopia have existed for hundreds of years with limited outside influence. They have cultivated their customs and rituals and have survived nature and mankind’s brutality. Yet today the outside world has infiltrated their balance and their survival is at risk.”
In this edition 405 photographers from 52 countries participated in the Award submitting 4410 images. Given the quality of works, the juror, assisted by the team of curators of The Gala Awards have decided to award three photographers in this edition, that will share the First Prize. The prize of $3,000 will be divided among the three winners of the Award.
We’re proud to announce that Michael Knapstein from Middleton, Wisconsin, USA, Annette Bonnier from Miami, Florida, USA, and Julia Fullerton-Batten from Bremen, Germany (living and working in London, UK), were selected as winners of the 11th edition of the Pollux Awards.
