SND33: First JSR, for photography

Politiken of Denmark has earned the first Judges’ Special Recognition of the competition, for its bold use of photography. Its entry in category 15E — multiple photos — comprised eight cover pages from its Kultur section.

What the judges said:

“Here we see the use of the canvas to its full potential. It is bold, powerful and dynamic and stops you in your tracks. Great use of the broadsheet format – we receive different perspectives and contrasts, and strong work of different sizes. It’s a body of work that feels like a complete set, yet all are different from each other.”
