Nikon Photo Contest 2022-2023 Judges

Yolanda Escobar Jiménez

Photographer, Editor

Seeing thousands of works from photographers worldwide is a chance for me to learn, discover, and understand other contexts, realities, and the things around me that I would not normally notice. I will be able to see how others perceive and tell their own stories or those of others, and discover new ways of storytelling and confronting what I know. Don't be afraid of or wait to do that longed-for project in order to discover powerful stories in the everyday. Tell that minimal story that is just around the corner. Send in your photographic projects, films, or a photograph you will never take again that you know is powerful and has soul.
