Gazi Nafis Ahmed wins third prize at Int値 Pride Photo Awards 2015

Bangladeshi photographer Gazi Nafis Ahmed won the third prize at the International Pride Photo Award 2015, held recently in the historic Old Church in Amsterdam. There were 3,800 entries from 60 countries around the world. The Pride Photo Award is considered to be the most prestigious contest for photography about gender diversity.
Nafis won the award in ‘Stories of Love and Pride’ theme category for his series ‘Inner Face’, which addresses the sensitive and precarious issues of human rights of the LGBT community. The series convey the subtle sense of challenge in the expressions of the community in a traditional and conservative culture like Bangladesh. Gazi Nafis Ahmed studied Art & Design at the Sir John Cass Department of Art, Media & Design of London Guildhall University in London and Photography at the Danish School of Media and Journalism in Denmark. Nafis was awarded a full scholarship by the Istituto Europeo di Design in Madrid for Fine Arts in Photography.
At the ceremony, Vince Aletti, photo critic at the New Yorker, and member of the jury said, “What attracted me most in the winning entries are the stories that come from a personal point of view: original ways of storytelling, whether art photography or documentary.”
Jury chairman Frank Kalero added, “It is good to see that the professional community of photographers is starting to take Pride Photo Award seriously, they see that it is a good way to legitimate and share the work they are doing. There was such a wide range of subjects from all over the world, and we were happy to see that many of them were made by insiders: people telling their own stories. Those are often the strongest entries.”
The Pride Awards exhibition officially opened on the same day as award ceremony in the Old Church in Amsterdam will end on October 25. l
