Magdalena Kacperek, the winner of single shot award, captured a moment of break between performances of young ballet dancers halfway through their show.

Grzegorz Bukalski won a photostory award for his series of photographs taken during a number of car travels around Europe which show that travel can itself be one’s destination.
