Posted on Mar 15, 2011 in News | 0 comments

The exhibition of the 14th Luis Valtueña International Humanitarian Photography Prize is at the Centro Joaquín Roncal in Zaragoza from 9 March to 2 April. For the latest competition, for which over 1,500 photographs were received from 27 countries, the jury awarded first prize to Fernando Moleres from Bilbao for his work “Children in African Prisons” portraying children detained in Sierra Leone prisons. Moleres’ photographs are part of an ambitious project carried out in Sierra Leone prisons which present the reality of a crowded prison system where children are most vulnerable and suffer the worst conditions. Visitors can also see the short-listed photographs of the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake by Ricardo Venturi and of violence in Latin America by Javier Arcenillas, as well as a total of 40 snapshots reflecting disasters which nobody speaks about.
