Which place does cultural heritage hold within Mediterranean societies? How does it connect the past with the present, tradition with modernity? How does it integrate outside influences?

A photography competition that aims at valorising photos reflecting Mediterranean cultural heritage in all its richness and diversity; a diversity that embraces archaeological sites and ancient buildings, urban and rural landscapes and settlements, traditional houses, oral traditions, skills and knowledge, rituals. This immense heritage has been handed down from generation to generation and reflects the spirit of peoples and communities, and their value systems and beliefs, through the centuries.

Following the selection meeting held in Brussels on 28 September 2010, the members of the Jury Nicolas CAMOISSON (Photographer), Alexis CASTRO (CultureLab), Christophe GRAZ (RMSU/Euromed Heritage 4), Julia KÖGELSBERGER (European Commission EuropeAid), Ferdinand PIO (Photographer), and Montserrat VILLAVERDE (Rehabimed Association) are pleased to announce that the winner of the Crossing Viewpoints Photography Award 2010 is Mr. Nour EL REFAI from Egypt.

A special mention has been given to the works of Gianluca Capri (Italy), Augustin Le Gall (France), Eyad Jadallah (Palestinian Authority) and Frédéric Seguran (France).

The thirty photographs selected for the final phase will be presented in a roving exhibition in various venues in the EU and Mediterranean Partner countries from 2011 onwards.

The winner of the award will be invited to attend the inauguration of the Photo Exhibition to be organised on 15 February 2011 in Barcelona at “Hospital de Sant Pau i la Santa Creu”, a venue recognized as a masterpiece of Art Nouveau architecture and inscribed to UNESCO Cultural Heritage List.
