Alice Smeets Wins Top UNICEF Photo Prize

PhotoShelter photographer Alice Smeets recently won first price in the UNICEF photo of the year competition. Alice and her agency “Out of Focus” document social issues “to produce a constant testimony of the cruelty but also the beauty that the human race faces every day.”

“The young Belgian photographer Alice
Smeets is the winner of the international photo competition
“UNICEF-Photo of the Year”. Her winning
picture shows a girl in the largest slum in Port-au-Prince,
Haiti’s capital. Although she has to live between dirt
and rubbish, the girl is wearing a clean white dress
with matching ribbons in her hair whilst walking barefoot
through the mud.”

Congratulations to Alice!
