We are so grateful to conduct and host the Visage Student’s Photography Exhibition & Competition 2016.
The competition started in February 2016 until 30th April 2016 where students around the world had an opportunity to submit their photographs depicting gender challenges in achieving the equality. We received over 70 photographs from over 25 countries, however only 60 photographs were judges as they would at least meet the requirement criteria. We are glad to announce the three winners of the Visage Students Photography Competition and Exhibition 2016
It was astonishing to see how gender challenges are depicted in different societies around the world. We the Visage team, have learned a lot from all the submissions, even from those that we could not print for the exhibition because they were either too personal or far from the theme.
However, we thank each one of you who took time to participate in the competition and for those who attended the exhibition in Vienna on 19th May 2016.
For the winners that are not in Vienna we shall make arrangement on how you can receive your awards. Please if you see your name as a winner write us an email for more details.
