For the second year in a row, Passaggi has launched a competition for digital photography enthusiasts on the web. This year the theme was inspired by the one proposed by the IV edition of the festival: possible happiness. How to translate an often ineffable concept into an image? More than 200 photos have arrived and, among these, many really valuable. A jury of experts selected 6, distributed on two rankings: one national and one local. Salvatore Morgante, from Sicily, won the first prize in the national contest with a ‘perfect’ picture from a technical point of view; the close-up of Omar, a 20-year-old Senegalese refugee («the boy’s face, thanks to the extraordinary executive talent of the photographer, appears to be valued and able to communicate a pure sense of sunshine and ‘possible happiness’.
