JURY CITATION
„The winning project, a web documentary,  tells the stories of men and women in France who are living in precarious conditions due to poor housing. The stories are told through portrait photography and intimate interviews. Each voice is set in the context of research figures on the millions of French people who suffer as a result of housing issues.
The jury said: “This is a project with outstanding content”. “It’s like a radio 2.0 mix of audio and pictures”  that is “more real than video”. “The project doesn’t just tell the story of the people but also keeps their dignity intact.” “It upholds social values as well as high production standards”.“
