Simon Móricz-Sabján’s photograph won second prize in Photojournalism category at the Xposure International Photography Festival. The awards were presented at the Fifth Photo and Short Film Festival in Sharjah, UAE.
The same image won third prize in The Independent Photographer’s “Visual Storytelling” competition. In the jury’s assessment, they said: “Simon Móricz-Sabján’s thoroughly arresting and impeccably-framed image brilliantly demonstrates the medium’s communicative capabilities. Strikingly forthright, yet imbued with a surreal quality, it imparts the essence of the scene perfectly, yet simultaneously resonates far beyond the sum of its parts, serving as a profoundly somber and familiar symbol of the ongoing global health crisis.”
