Jonas Bendiksen Wins Again

Congrats to friend and all-around amazing man and photographer Jonas Bendiksen for winning yet another prize, this time for 250,000 NOK (if you can’t do the conversion from Norwegian Kroner in your head, that’s about $45,000) from Telenor International to continue his photojournalistic work. See the press release here and photos here.

This prize comes on the heels of Jonas’ receiving the National Geographic Grant, to do a project on China, back in April, the June announcement that he was to be a full member in Magnum, a Freedom of Expression Foundation grant in 2007 (which I believe allowed him to produce the amazing exhibition at the Nobel Center that I mentioned in an earlier post). If that didn’t convince you, let me reiterate that he is an incredibly hard working, ambitious (in the best of ways) and talented guy. Someone for us all to look up to.

Not the least because it looks like you get to have some pretty fun parties too when you win these things…
