Biography

Ilvy Njiokiktjien

Ilvy Njiokiktjien was born in the Netherlands, and, after leaving school, she studied for a year in South Dakota (USA) before returning home to study journalism and photography. She graduated in 2006 and started working as a writer and photographer for the Dutch newspaper Spits, and for the Dutch Press Agency, ANP.

In 2007 she went to work for The Star, a South African daily, and had the idea of traveling back from Johannesburg to Utrecht by car. During this trip, she took her own photographs, but also handed out cameras to local people, to participate in a ‘Picture Your Life’ project. Back in the Netherlands, she started working freelance.

In 2008 she won the Canonprijs, part of the Zilveren Camera award, as well as first prize in the National Geographic Photography Contest. In 2010, she won another Zilveren Camera award, in the Foreign News category, and in 2011, the Canon AFJ Female Photojournalist Award.

In addition to the award in the 2012 World Press Photo Contest’s Contemporary Issues category, Ilvy’s photographs of the extreme right organisation, Kommandokorps, in South Africa, recently received both a Zilveren Camera award and an Award of Excellence in the feature category of the Pictures of the Year International award (POYi). The multimedia presentation ‘Afrikaner Blood’, on the same subject, made with multimedia journalist Elles van Gelder, won a POYi first place in the Issue Reporting Multimedia section and first place at the 2012 World Press Photo Multimedia Contest.

In 2012 Ilvy was listed by PDN as one of the ‘30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch’ and was named as one of 12 participants in the 2012 World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass. Her pictures have been published in Telegraph Magazine, l’Espresso, The Daily Mail and The Guardian, Vrij Nederland, HP de Tijd, and other publications.
