Written by FDM

The winning photographs of the contest launched by the Editions Langages du Sud have just been revealed. This year, the chosen theme revolved around lockdown and quarantine.

220 photographers, professionals and amateurs alike, participated in the photo competition “Interior Horizons: sharing and conviviality in times of quarantine”. Three have cut through the clutter. Youness Sefaoui won first prize, Youssef Oubahou, second prize, and Lofti Souidi, a special mention.

To decide between these pictures evoking lockdown, a jury composed of Hassan Hajjaj, artist photographer, Deborah Benzaquen, artist photographer, Yoriyas, artist photographer, Mehdi Qotbi, painter and president of the National Museums Foundation, Kristi Jones, exhibition curator and Patricia Defever, founder and director-general of Langages du Sud.

In light of the enthusiasm aroused by the photo competition, Langages du Sud intends to extend the adventure and award a prize to the public. This reward will go to the most liked photo on its Instagram page next week, according to a press release. The organizers also explained that beyond the competition, they launched an original dynamic to constitute a true cultural testimony of historical significance on the life of Moroccans during the lockdown.
