The jury of the 65´th Swedish POY selected Karl Melander´s picture of Cosan´s ethanol factoy outside Sao Paulo, Brazil, to win the title Picture of the Year in Sweden. Karl also won the first prize in the category "Sport Feature" for his reportage about the female boxer Namibia Flores Rodriguez. The whole list of winners can you find here.

For the title "Photographer of the Year" the jury chosed Åke Ericsson, a good choise I think. He also won first prize in the category "Deeper Meening" and also the first prize in "Foreign Reportage". He had a busy year, it seems like.

The banquette after the award-ceremony was held at Berns Salonger in Stockholm. Nice people, nice food and a lot of nice clothing...
HERE you can see me (at left) and Sydsvenskans photographer Lars Dareberg posing for the magazine Kamera&Bild´s editor-in-chief Göran Segeholm´s camera. Do we look good?
