In the motivation for the prize, picture editor Kristian Djurhuus wrote: “The photographer tells a story from a remote part of the world with such great intimacy that the story becomes present for the reader”.
This Monday, Ida will take over our Instagram and show the pictures from her prize winning story.
At the graduation ceremony all Danish journalists and photojournalists received their diplomas. Congratulations to all of you, especially the graduated photojournalists:
