2nd place – Caroline Ellington (UK)

Caroline Ellington started photography a long time ago, when she was a childcare worker. She depicted the children’s daily adventures so that their parents could see what they were doing while they were at work. It wasn’t until after the birth of her fourth child that she really learned to use the camera properly. Today, she shoots for her happiness, but also captures for others a special moment that they want to immortalize and that they want to remember. She loves to photograph what makes her happy. It can be very impulsive, for example, if the light is especially beautiful that evening. This is usually the deciding factor, if the light is good you can’t go wrong.

Audience Award – Kony Muller (Germany)

For many years, Loni Muller had a close relationship with the German travel circus Probst. As part of her day job as a Marketing Director, she has collaborated with this circus many times in the past. This is how this 67-year-old amateur photographer from Essen witnessed the closure of this family business for a year and a half during the Covid-19 crisis in Germany. This year I learned that the circus hosted 15 artists from Ukraine who had fled their country at the start of the war. These refugees are now part of their squad, working and traveling with the band and performing in front of Connie Muller’s camera. After all, that smile you’ll see on their faces isn’t just for onlookers. It is above all an expression of joy, because these artists can finally perform again.
