The FEP FETA Award 2016 goes to Priscilla Pallante, Italy
In 2013, The Federation of European Photographers, in collaboration with a number of Universities and Colleges, introduced a new photographic award for young photographers. The aim is to encourage and recognise the high standard of photographic image making taking place in Europe by final year University students and newly qualified young photographers.
Jim Lowe, Chairman of the FEP Emerging Talent Award (FETA) commented, that there was an extremely high standard of photographic imagery in this years’ submissions for the Award and added: “Such incredible imagery is taking our profession to a new level and this bodes well, not only for the future of the award, but perhaps more importantly for the future of the photographic profession in Europe. The Award is open to talented young students of photography from Colleges and Universities across Europe who have just completed their photographic studies. The panels of imagery submitted for the FETA award gives viewers an insight into the work produced by these young photographers from different countries. The depth of creativity and technical skills shown by these talented young photographers from all over Europe is excellent. ’The future is bright’ . The work of this year’s winner Priscilla Pallante from Italy demonstrated a high level of both creativity and technical skills expected for the award. It is series of mystical and thought provoking images beautifully shot, using controlled and sensitive blue tinted lighting showing a distinct and personal vision of her subject. Priscilla, is a worthy winner in this exciting new international photographic award for young photographers.”
