first prize

Vote No. 1 by Mark Duffy

The Irish landscape was littered with electoral campaign advertising during the recent European, local and national by-elections. ‚Vote No. 1′ documents this and examines the culture of election advertising in Ireland. The series focuses on the accidental, and often gruesome, disfigurements the electoral candidates‘ faces suffer – an unintended consequence of their posters‘ erection. These images reflect the Irish electorate’s increasing disillusionment with the political process after years of harshening austerity politics.

Vote No. 1 will be published by AnzenbergerEdition and award winning photobook designer Ania Nalecka will overview the design!
