At the beginning of this year I have taken part in a photojournalism competition of a Polish edition of Newsweek. Although Newsweek lost in my eyes a lot, as they cancelled the competition half way through at first, run it again at later time without informing us of it changing the rules of the competition, then, failed to publish the results on time, and at last, they changed how the winners were chosen, I have eventually been awarded a 3rd place in my category, which was “events in 2011”. I won a watch, but to be honest, this 3rd place is what I am proud of the most, even though of all of this mess!
Below you can see my winning photos; the entry was presenting August’s protest of Catalonians’ against constitutional changes in Spain, which were eventually approved by the Government on 7th September 2011. Spanish, and here, Barcelonians’ were protesting for bonding referendum.
