The biggest European photographic talent 2014 – is Danish!
A Dane is bringing THE GOLDEN CAMERA to Denmark for the first time! The award is presented at Photokina, the world’s biggest photo event in September with over 200.000 visitors.
THE GOLDEN CAMERA in Danish hands
For the first time ever is THE GOLDEN CAMERA in Danish hands. For comparison, it is like if the national football team won the World Championship. This is a dream coming true for Denmark when the young and beautiful photographer, Malou Reedorf (24 years) from Fyn is becoming a celebrity in the whole of Europe when she steps on to the stage and receives the award never won by a Dane before – THE GOLDEN CAMERA. To follow her photographic carrier and open a studio she moved to Italy, Trento this year.
Malou Reedorf states:
“To win THE GOLDEN CAMERA” exceeds my wildest dreams! To participate in such a prestige’s competition as an equal to some of Europa’s finest photographers is an honour. I would never had dared to think that I would be the one that got the top award – THE GOLDEN CAMERA 2014.
Two Danish photographers receives exclusive single image award at Photokina
The interest for photography has never been bigger so to create new and innovative photography takes something very special and a true photographic lifestyle 24/7. Both recipients of the single image award possess this lifestyle: Malou Reedorf and Michael With. The passion to develop Danish photography that is noticed at international level is a huge motivation, which both photographers practise in i.a. dff/Danish photography society.
Michael With (48 years) has won awards in three continents. This year he is presented with an SILVER AWARD in Wedding as one of only six wedding photographers in Europe and thereby enters an exclusive club as one of the top 10 best wedding photographers in Europe. Malou Reedorf (three Golden Awards and THE GOLDEN CAMERA) makes her first appearance at Photokina – one that goes down in Danish history!
Michael With states:
“Its crazy! Top 10 in wedding in the world (World Photographic Cup 2014) and top 10 in wedding in Europe (FEP – Federation of European Photographers 2014) in the same year! It is difficult to grasp that just little over two years ago, I had cancer and thought that I would die. It is so life affirming to have gotten so far and being here today. I am proud of being able to present Denmark once again at an international competition.
