Winner of Nikon Thursday Award 2009

For her story “Still Human, Still Here” the jury (Pep Bonet, E; Meta Krese, Slo; Rok Gašparič, Slo; Chris de Bode, NL – Jury president) felt was the best and have awarded her the prize. Chris de Bode stated for the jury: “Abbie has shown a very personal story, where she went out and met people on her own doorstep and brought their stories to the public. She exposed herself to her own environment and succeeded to make contact by telling these stories on a very personal, touching way, which persuaded the jury. She has built the bridge between the people in the story and the audience, and made the audience recognize the hardships of her subjects.”
The jury has also expressed an honorary mention to the work of Jean Christoph Couet (USA), Camouflage – Suicide in Slovenia, and the work of Ian Teh (UK), Dark Clouds – The hidden side of China’s miracle economy.
Congratulation to the winner and recepients of honorary mentions.

Zmagovalka Nikonove Četrtkove nagrade
Abbie Trayler-Smith (Velika Britanija) je prejemnica Nikonove Četrtkove nagrade 2009!
Za fotografsko zgodbo “Še vedno človek, še vedno tu” je žirija (Pep Bonet, E; Meta Krese, Slo; Rok Gašparič, Slo; Chris de Bode, NL – predsednik žirije) menila, da je najboljša in ji podelila letošnjo nagrado. Za žirijo je predsednik Chris de Bode izjavil: “Abbie je prikazala zelo osebno zgodbo, kjer je spoznala ljudi na lastnem pragu ter predestavila njihove zgodbe. Skozi to delo se je izpostavila lastnemu okolju in uspela vzpostaviti stik ter podati zgodbo na zelo oseben, ganljiv način, ki je prepričal žirijo. Postavila je most med ljudmi v zgodbi in občinstvom, ki so spoznali njihovo trpljenje.”
Posebno pohvalo je žirija izrekla projektu Jeana Christopha Coueta (ZDA), Prikrivanje – Samomori v Sloveniji ter projektu Iana Teha (VB), Temni oblaki – skrita stran kitajske čudežne ekonomije.
Čestitke zmagovalki in prejemnikom posebnih pohval.
