Entry Title: ” Brothels: Living in Darkness”
Name: Miguel Candela, Spain
Category: Non-Professional, Photo Essay and Feature Story
Entry Description: It’s an unlikely place for sex: a rundown concrete building where rats run free in rural Bangladesh. Small holes in the walls allow the only supply of natural light and air into the jail-like compound. Fluorescent bulbs hesitate to light up, and turn it into the ideal background for a horror blockbuster. After countless demonstrations that stirred media interest, prostitutes now don’t have to walk barefoot when they leave the brothel, and can be buried in a separate cemetery. In 2010, radical Islamists burned down the whole compound injuring two and leaving most without anything.

Entry Title: ” Afghan Heroin: Not for Export”
Name: Thomas Stanworth, United Kingdom
Category: Non-Professional, War/Conflict
Entry Description: The Russian Cultural Center, Kabul, Afghanistan, once showcased Soviet art and culture. The complex was destroyed during the civil war and for years has been used by Kabul’s heroin addicts. Due to persecution, they hide largely unseen within the unlit rooms and passageways within the ruined complex. Despite the billions of dollars poured into counter-narcotics programs, there are virtually no rehabilitation facilities in Kabul to help the country’s own victims, who are thought to exceed a million. Pressure from the authorities has seen many addicts forced out of the Russian Center and into even worse conditions throughout the capital.

As they are almost perfect looking, they observe themselves very strict and criticize every single flaw on their body and face. The four guys are in complete contrast to the girls. They are not perfect at all but they look very confident at themselves and don’t care about any beauty ideals. They are not pristine but they are satisfied.

Entry Title: ” Isolation”
Name: Luke Smith, United Kingdom
Category: Non-Professional, Culture
Entry Description: For this series I wanted to address the issue of isolation within the elderly by its symbolic representation. With each image the elderly person faces away from the viewer, revealing the subjects absorption, so denying the presence of the viewer, with no ability towards identification, in doing so themselves becoming severed from the image and isolated from the activity being observed. I wanted to summon a confrontational experience from the viewer based on fragments and contradictions in the images systematic order. By violating spatial logic I have attempted to load each image with the symbolic representation of isolation.
