The relationship between the fabrics and the colours is incredible. Annelie Schubert has taste and elegance. She has an endearing personality and is very sensitive, unpretentious, down to earth and fresh. »- The members of the jury

AWARDS - EN.indd AWARDS - EN.indd

Sjoerd Knibbeler, Netherlands

CHANEL supports the Grand Prix of the Photography Jury, where the prize-winner will receive a donation of 15.000 euros.

«This work is a reflection on the limits of the medium of photography: how to photograph the seemingly unphotographiable. The winner tries to give shape to what we do not see, like wind, and he does it in a way that is both poetic and experimental, almost scientific, sometimes recalling the experiences of Etienne Jules Marey. In the same vein, he gives shape to projects that have never been done, and that he reconstitutes through models made of origami. We must add that he represents the young generation very well. His very coherent work, covering all the fields of photography, is accompanied by a video work that completes and illustrates his process. A particularly well executed, in fact impeccable, book, also participates in giving shape to his work.»


Special Prize of the Photography Jury is Evangelia Kranioti

AWARDS - EN.indd

Evangelia Kranioti, Greece.

CHANEL supports the Special Prize of the Photography Jury, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Hyères Festival, where the prize-winner will receive a donation of 15.000 euros.

«The jury was unanimous in wishing to honour the film of Evangelia Kranioti. Her photographic work is in the cinematographic tradition. It is a long story put into images, that tells of Greece, wandering, the solitude of sailors and their loved ones. It is a long-term work, created over 9 years. We were touched by her perseverance, her tenacity and by the humanity of her oeuvre. We were truly enamoured by her work. »
