The panel of judges will be composed of David Alan Harvey (photographer, Magnum Agency), Kent Kobersteen (former Director of Photography of National Geographic Magazine), Antonin Kratochvil (VII agency), Alex Majoli (photographer, Magnum Agency), Ute Noll (gallerist, OnPhotography) and Arianna Rinaldo (photo-editor, OjoDePez & D-LaRepubblica). A special mention (Menzione Speciale Food Writers) will be given by three international journalists from three different continents.
