Awards and Accolades
As the professional week draws to a close, last night’s evening screening in Campo Santo saw some of the biggest honours being bestowed.
Receiving a standing ovation for his le Figaro Magazine Lifetime Achievement Visa d’Or was NOOR photojournalist Stanley Greene, who commented: “I wish to thank all my colleagues. You have taught me how to be the photographer I am. And I want to thank all of the fixers, drivers and translators I have worked with over the years. And the last thing I want to say, which is straight from ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’, is: ‘thank you to the kindness of strangers who I’ve met on the road who have guided me and helped me all my life.’ I salute you all.”
The other big award winner last night was Peter Bauza, of Echo Photojournalism, who won the Visa d’or Feature award for 'Copacabana Palace, Brazil’ and collected a cheque for €8000 from the Région Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées.
Congratulations from CPN to all the award winners this year!
