Since the first of October the winners of the Greenpeace Photo Award 2016 have been announced. On www.photo-award.org 11 nominees have presented their environment-themed photo projects to the public. The audience prize, which has been voted for by more than 19,000 visitors, was finally awarded and the winner will receive an amount of 10,000 Euros. Besides this, another two jury prizes were awarded by international experts. These are also worth 10,000 Euros each.
The prizes sponsored by Greenpeace are used by photographers to realize their projects. In 2017/18 the jury prizes will be published in GEO Magazine while the audience prize will be featured in Greenpeace Magazine.
MARIZILDA CRUPPE received the audience prize for her project “To live and to die for the rainforest”. The Brazilian photographer wants to accompany women fighting for the survival of the Amazon rainforest over a longer period of time. The result will be a multi-media project consisting of photos, videos, audio recordings and texts.
