Alliance Francaise Award Photo Competition Prizes

Alliance Francaise on Friday awarded the winners of its 'Jobs of the World' photo competition their prizes. The competition called on aspiring photographers to submit work in line with the Job of the World theme.

Ryan Jansssens' black and white photographs emerged the winners of the competition.

Nermark explained how the photo instead had its concentration point beginning at the bottom right of the photo and went across to the left. In the second photograph, Janssens was commended on his use of light in the photo of a man working on a surfing board.
