To celebrate the end of a turbulent year across the region, Kafkadesk held a friendly photography contest for amateur photographers in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. This year’s theme was ‘Revolting People’… Here are the winners.

Originally from Krakow, Ada Żarkowski is back in her hometown after spending a number of years in Asia. This picture was taken during the Sunflower Movement in Taiwan when protesters were violently vilified by the government despite their peaceful nature – revolting is always a matter of perspective, she says.

Second Place: Julián Rómer – Budapest, Hungary

Born in Bogotá, Julián Rómer is a Colombian sociologist, historian, photographer and a PhD student living in Budapest. He took this picture after the Parliamentary Elections in Hungary, when the people started to protest every Saturday against the winning party, shouting: “you are not my president”.

This year’s winner is Debra M Josephson, a global photojournalist, storyteller running a creative, community space in Warsaw. A self-proclaimed Experient Explorer, she took this picture during last year’s Independence March… a picture she describes both as revolting (grotesque in purpose) and revolting (protesting). You can find all her photos on her website and on Facebook.

 

Honorable Mentions:

Tomáš Jelinek – Prague, Czech Republic

Tomáš Jelinek was born in Bratislava but now lives and work as a grahic designer in Prague. For this picture taken in the Czech capital, he was inspired by the contrast between the revolting rawness of the graffiti and the perceived innocence of the children’s toys.
