"Showing life in an uncompromising way; sometimes sad, sometimes funny." Prizes for documentary photographers; amongst the winners, our school’s photography students and graduates.

- A documentary photographer is a specific person. With his work he often stirs things up not allowing the truth to perish and showing life, which can sometimes be sad and sometimes funny, in an uncompromising way. At the same time his whole work is an outcome of an extreme sensitivity. Thank to such people we do not forget. – said about the work of documentary photographers the Jury President of the 11th BZ WBK Press Photo Competition, Wojciech Grzędziński.
