From Jan 22nd unti Feb 19th: " Against the Tide "


The award-winning photo (1st prize) by Filip Van Zandycke
title : “Stuurloze rondvaart”.
"cruising around out of control"

The jury describes the award-winning picture as "a nice picture with good composition, where the link between the canal and the city is non-existent. Within a few hundred metres from each other,  we find housing, office towers and scrap yards. There is a place for old iron, but the children play on a square meter of concrete, with fences on all sides, the weeds beside the water bottle is the only green on the 'public' space. "

The photo of Jean-Pierre Beke (2nd prize) is "charming through the waves in the water: it looks as if they were caused by the lost walkers whom stroll along a beautiful stretch of the canal.. The photographer chose a special place in order to capture it, as it is one of the few places where space is given to pedestrians. It is unfortunate that this boulevard lays along a highway and a high wall that hides the gardens of the Royal Palace from the walkers. "

Third prize goes to Leen Cools with "Just (ice) Blue", where the Palace of Justice can be seen, very tiny in the distance, yet so powerfully present in the picture.
