Lasse Mejlvang wins the Scanpix Prize

At the dimission ceremony today, Lasse Mejlvang received the Scanpix Prize for the best photojournalistic BA-project.

 

Lasse Mejlvang was not able to be at the award Ceremony, so he sent a video message instead. Picture by Mads Greve.

 

Lasse Mejlvang received the prize for his project "A place they call home" about the 16 year old refugee, Remzi Baftijari, who've been deported from Denmark to Kosovo.

 

"My body is in Kosovo. My mind is not", says Remzi in the project by Lasse Mejlvang. Picture by Lasse Mejlvang.

 

The project has just been exhibited at the Lumix Festival in Hannover.

 

Lasse Mejlvang graduated with the story in January 2014, but back then only two students were ready to graduate their BA exam. Therefore the Scanpix prize wasn't handed out in January.

 

At the end of each semester Scanpix celebrates the photojournalists by giving a prize to the best BA-project of the semester. It's the staff at Scanpix who select the Scanpix winner on the basis of nominations from the teachers.

35 projects - 50 students - 6 hours

International student Philipp Jeske presents his final photo story.

 

The best day of the semester at DMJX is when all the photo students gather for the final screening day.

 

On this day we watch all the projects made during the last workshops at the different semesters.

 

Today was no different - we spent more than six hours in the TV-auditorium, where we watched 35 inspiring and visually strong projects.

 

Now, most of our students will do their exams before it's time for the summer break.
