Winners of the IV Befesa Photography Competition

At last we know the winners of the IV Befesa Photography Competition. The members of the panel of judges cast their votes appraising the composition, creativity and technique, without knowing the identity of the entrants.

The panel of judges comprised members of Befesa’s corporate services and business units.

The first prize, worth € 1,000 in each category, went to:

1. Befesa and nature:

- Darius Morys, from Befesa Zinc Duisburg, for the photograph "Befesa grey and green". According to Darius, the picture shows the co-existence of nature and industry, reflected in the interaction between the Befesa Zinc Duisburg plant and the monument known as “Tiger and Turtle - Magic Mountain”, which used to be a landfill site.
