2008 (EN)

This year the Award is dedicated to the theme of "Dialogue through Arts", and in particulart to visual arts as drawing, painting, photography and sculpture. The great news for this edition was that the members of National Networks had the possibility, not only to propose candidates, but also to elect the winner of the Award voting on-line.

Rima Maroun (25 years old Lebanese) is the winner of this edition. Maroun is a photographer who believes that “dialogue starts by the way we look at each other”. Her most famous work of art Murmures is a reflection on the choice of the perspective given or not to the audience. 

As for the 5 runners-up, they are (in descending order):
· Abed Abdi (Palestinian Photographer),
· Ramzi Harrabi (Tunisian Painter, Poet, Singer),
· Katja Schaefer (German Artistic Director),
· Marcel De Munnynck (Belgian Photographer),
· Atilla Durak (Turkish Photographer).

The Awarding Ceremony took place during the first meeting of the ALF Advisory Council, held in Naples on September 26 and 27, 2008.
