lensculture The First Ever Lens Culture International Exposure Awards

More than 6,000 photos from 48 countries were submitted to the first-ever Lens Culture International Exposure Awards. That’s a lot of talent to choose from. In the end, Marco Vernaschi, an Italian photojournalist based in Buenos Aires, won grand prize for his moving and hard-hitting series on the consequences of cocaine trafficking in the small West African country of Guinea-Bissau.

Vernaschi’s work not only impressed the judges, it also impressed a New York Times photo editor who, upon seeing his images in the Blurb book published about the event, gave Vernaschi a commission for a future project (we’ll keep you posted and let you know when it runs). Wow. Talk about a happy ending, or maybe more accurately, a great beginning.

All of us at Blurb are thrilled that we could sponsor and publish such a great event. We extend big congratulations to all the winners, a shout out to all who entered, and thanks to Lens Culture for bringing this event to life. Get inspired – check out the Blurb book of the 2009 Lens Culture Awards.

  1. Thanks so much for your enthusiastic writing about our book and competition. We’ve had to re-upload the files to fix a problem with the preview feature. So, I wonder if you would be kind enough to change your link in this blog entry to the correct version of the book:
