HUAWEI NEXT IMAGE Awards 2022, the three grand prize winners
The international jury awarded the First Prize to three works, “FORCE” by Adão Filipe Fernandes Salgado, “Fireworks” di Wang Zihaoe “Just Shaen” by Enrica Brescia and awarded their respective authors a $10,000 prize as encouragement for future artistic endeavours.
“It’s one of those rare and important moments in which you understand that the commitment and love you put into things, especially your passions, always pays off. And so it was,” he says Enrico Brescia. “I have been working with Huawei devices since 2009 when I represented the Italian photography of the HUAWEI P9 advertising campaign Change the way you see the world. Since then, these devices have played a central role in my work, especially in the Street and Portraiture fields“.
