Our guest photographer contest in 2015 was inspired by it being the European Year for Development. Every month we announced a different topic linked to development, inviting people to send us a photo inspired by that month's theme. The public winner, whose photo received the most likes on Facebook and Google+, was Rosabella De Angelis, while the jury prize winner was Éva Szabó.
An editorial committee selected the ten best entries and then picked the winner of the month. This automatically made them a finalist for the jury prize. At the same time, the ten best photos were showcased on our social media pages where everyone could vote for their favourite. The most liked photo was awarded the public prize. Both of these photographers were invited to the plenary session in November 2015.
