A young Palestinian photo-journalist, Mahmoud Illean, from Jerusalem is the winner of the 2011 edition of “Crossing viewpoints: Mediterranean cities as spaces of socialisation” International Photography Award organised by the EU-funded Euromed Heritage programme and the Rehabimed Association.
The photo competition has once more highlighted the place that cultural heritage holds in Mediterranean contemporary societies, especially for the youth who have massively participated at the competition: the jury has received 266 pictures from 23 different countries. The country with the highest number of participants is Algeria, followed by Morocco and France. In total, 63% of all participants are originally from the Mediterranean partner’s countries.
The Jury has given a special mention to Mohamed Karim Boumais, a 29 year old Moroccan photographer, to Olivier Dubuquoy , a freelancer from Marseilles, to Mohamed Badarne, from Haifa, and to Emanuele Ciccomartine, a photographer from Spain.
The winner Mahmoud Illean will be invited to the official inauguration of the exhibition “Crossing viewpoints: Mediterranean cities as spaces of socialisation”, to be held in Cairo in October 2012.
