The Royal Navy Peregrine Trophy’s main aspiration is to encourage and inspire wider production of powerful imagery that would represent the Royal Navy and Royal Marine’s operations in media. The role of photography, portraying the work of the Royal Navy has never been more important. The Royal Navy photographers who have captured images of life in the Royal Navy as well as the service’s technical prowess have been honoured at an annual awards ceremony in London. They were “recognised for their talent, dedication and creativity”.

“Abore Sandstorm”. This picture was taken in Omo Valley, Ethiopia. My guide and I reached an Arbore village and while we are speakng with the boss I looked to my right and i saw a brown tsunami coming to us. It was an incredible moment, women protecting of the storm with their cloths and I closed my eyes. When I thought the storm was over I opened my eyes and I saw this boy seating on an old tree, I ran to catch this Arbore portrait with the queue of the sandstorm in his backside.

Casa Rex, one of Brazil’s most creative and renowned agencies, has won an award at the HOW Poster Design Awards 2011. The poster ‘The Occupied Space’ has been chosen as one of the top 10 winners, out of almost 800 entries.
In order to advertise an exhibition promoted by Escola Viva whereby students and teachers were invited to arrive at the school, walk around and ‘occupy’ the diverse spaces within the school environment, Casa Rex has made bold use of the “empty” white space, using text that is scattered across the poster in random directions. “We invert what is traditionally seen as the correct occupied space in a poster”, jokes Gustavo Piqueira, creative director and head of the agency.
This is the 6th time that Casa Rex has earned an award by HOW magazine, which showcases the best in design from around the world. Earlier this year the HOW International Design Awards went to the packaging design developed for the Dixie Toga Holographic Collection of Empty Packs, as well as the graphic design for the book “Writings about Jade” (Ateliê Editorial); in 2010 the covers created for the “Saraiva Classics” book collection (Edições Jogo de Amarelinha) and also the graphic project for the “Cool Readings” collection (Ed. Biruta) were selected; and in 2008 the award was given for the the Paideia book collection covers (Ed. Martins Fontes).
The award ceremony will take place at July, 31 in Kerry Packer Civic Gallery, University of South Australia. Continue reading »
