The jury's comment 2013

by Florian Möllers (for the jury)

After only a few rounds the jury could narrow down the field of entries in both age groups to the truly powerful portfolios. In the adult group the four finalists were indeed very close together: all of them photographically ambitious and worthy of being awarded, but in the choice of their subjects fundamentally different. Also very strong: the series of images by the best young photographers. In the end, the best individual images within a series made all the difference and put the winner in the lead by a margin.
