We are happy to announce a shortlist of 19 finalists who have passed the first selection phase of the Open Call “Project Selection by Jérôme Sessini”. These wonderful projects have been chosen by the Magnum photographer among the total of 175 submissions.
They will be evaluated in great detail in the next few days. The choice of the winner won’t be easy: all the shortlisted projects have impressed Sessini with their originality, stylistic diversity and photographic genres. By deciding not to restrict a photo theme to this year’s Project Selection, we have received an incredible variety of different portfolios and projects – showing how far the creativity of a photographic eye can travel.
We share with you the first anticipating results. The shortlist is published in alphabetical order.
