His series 'Hidden Death', taken within an assembly line at an abbatoir, took the overall prize after triumphing in the Photojournalism and Documentary category. Amateur photographer Vitali Seitz took the Amateur award for 'Hauskonzert: Home concert' which depicts an informal concert to celebrate a family birthday.
