"It has been a close race, and the finalists and winners are the very best in a very hard competition with a lot of high scorers running up. The photographers are of course the center of a competition, but without the hard, qualified, joyful and voluntary work of the judges, there would not be any prestigious competition. So FEP would like to thank all the Judges for showing their love for Photography and its trade" says Chairman of the Judges and FEP President Jorgen Brandt, MQEP.
