> Sikh Sunday in Pontinha, Portugal

Sunday is by excellence the familly day or the families day. Yes, we have several and however we are only one...
I tried to portray Sunday in this Sikh religious family, that could be ours, or ours their, but as we think it can't be, we are unaware of each other and of ourselves, cultivating the ignorance of hollywood myths. [>]

I lost the functions that I was programmed as a child, I am now a man without faith. what I don't understand becomes obscure to me and sometimes surrealist. in this work, my photographs are almost always a mirror of my loss and emptiness. [>]

João Bacellar, Brasil BR

Besides telling several stories, photographs can denounce, teach, explain, try to improve, different realities of those who see them.

It's with photojournalism that the informative slope of photography reaches its maximum expoent. With it, what's far becomes closer, and the knowledge and attitude of humanity before iself grows and change.

Also, it's photojournalism that writes the history of the world, of small worlds, so that later can be remembered how it was, compare as it is.

We wait for your histories, accusations, informations, realities. Shows us a photograph with information.


This month the highlight goes to João Bacellar, from Brazil.

The contest extension to December resulted in a participation of more than 100 photos, from which we selected the best.

Thanks to all who participated. You made us a tough choice, and a good challenge to select from.
