Winners Chosen for BJP’s 2012 International Photography Award

This year, Alvaro Deprit has been named as the winner of the BJP’s annual International Photography Award. Alvaro beat off competition from 168 other entries to win the series category, submitting a story called Suspension which looks at unaccompanied minors who have fled war, poverty and political uncertainty for new lives in Italy. Judges Harry Hardie, founder and director of Here; Jess Crombie, head of film and photography at Save the Children; and Karen McQuaid, curator at The Photographers’ Gallery, were impressed with the strength of the story Deprit had depicted, and the sensitivity he brought to it and his young subjects.

BJP Press Release

Winners chosen for this year’s International Photography Award

17th October, 2012

The British Journal of Photography’s annual International Photography Award has proved truly international this year, with a Spaniard based in Rome and Istanbul winning the series category and a Russian based in London the single image prize.

Alvaro Deprit beat off competition from 168 other entries to win the series category, submitting a story called Suspension which looks at unaccompanied minors who have fled war, poverty and political uncertainty for new lives in Italy. Judges Harry Hardie, founder and director of Here; Jess Crombie, head of film and photography at Save the Children; and Karen McQuaid, curator at The Photographers’ Gallery, were impressed with the strength of the story Deprit had depicted, and the sensitivity he brought to it and his young subjects. Deprit’s clients and publications include Newsweek, Internazionale, Vanity Fair, Viva Magazine, El Periodico, Glamour, L’Espresso, Burn Magazine and D Repubblica. He stated “It’s an honour having won an award from such a quality and reputable magazine - one that’s made history, and kept pace with the history of photography.”

Nikolai Ishchuk beat 720 other entries to the single image category with a mischievous take on snapshot portraiture. Taking a found image showing a couple kissing centre stage for the camera, he spilt them up and put them to the edges of the shot using Photoshop’s ‘offset’ command, then put the original background back in. Judges Francesca Sears, director of Panos Profile; Emma Bowkett, picture editor of the Financial Times Magazine; and Daniel Baer, creative director of Studio Baer, were impressed with the sheer verve of Nikolai’s work, and its fresh take on photography. The image is taken from a wider project called Offset, which was exhibited at Whitechapel Gallery in the London Open earlier this year.

Deprit’s series and Ishchuk’s image will now be printed and framed by Spectrum Photographic, and will be on show at Foto8 Gallery from 14th - 24th November.

The Private View will be on Thursday 15th November from 6.30-9.30pm at Foto8 Gallery, 1-5 Honduras St, London EC1Y from 6.30pm – 9.30pm,  and all are welcome.
