The international jury panel has just announced Photographer of the Year, Best New Talent of the Year and the category winners of the Budapest International Foto Awards 2022. The winners were selected from thousands of entries from all over the world after rigorous voting. The breathtaking works of photography speak to the immense talent of this year’s photographers. Through the lens of the photographers, we could see remote villages where the population is slowly going extinct, bizarrely shaped constructions and natural wonders we would never believe exist on our planet.
Founder of the BIFA, Mr. Hossein Farmani, shared his thoughts on this year’s winning entries, “When it comes to this year’s BIFA entries, imagination knows no bounds or borders. The photographers enable us to view and comprehend not just our surroundings but also how communities far from us live. I would like to personally thank and congratulate the photographers for their relentless work and bringing us a fresh new perspective through their talent and creativity.”
Photographer of the Year 2022, Ege Edener makes a strong juxtaposition of modern times, the cities we roam and our sense of self – all of the elements that so often get muddled up in the rush of everyday lives.
BIFA Best New Talent of the Year 2022 Vladimir Karamazov grasped the powerful feeling of slowly fading away in his poignant series of photographs where he uncovers the last eight inhabitants of a small Bulgarian village.
The Photographer of the Year will receive a $3,000 cash prize and the BIFA trophy and Discovery of the Year will be awarded a $2,000 cash prize along with the BIFA trophy. Main category winners will receive a $200 cash prize each. First Place and Main Category Winners will all enjoy international publicity throughout the year and have their works exhibited across the world.
