And the winners are... 

Gábor Szellő and Alessandra Giansante are the winners of our Guest Photographer contest. The competition took place from January until May with one theme per month. The 10 best entries were selected each month and published on our social media platforms. A panel of experts selected Mr Szellő as the jury winner while Ms Giansante was elected public winner after her pictures received the most likes in the Guest Photographer albums on Facebook and Flickr.

Gábor Szellő (37) is a freelance photographer from Hungary who concentrates mainly on street photography, as well as taking portrait and landscape shots. You can find his work at www.szellogabor.hu.

Alessandra Giansante (32) is a graphic designer and photographer. She inherited her passion for photography from her father. "I like to play with different points because it can bring a memory of a moment to mind," says Alessandra.

Both photos illustrating this article were sent in for the April topic "Plastic Bags".

The winners will be invited to the Strasbourg plenary session of July, where they will create a photo reportage with their unique view on the Parliament. We will publish the results on our Facebook and Flickr pages.
