I am so excited to announce we have won 3rd Prize in the World Press Photo Multimedia Awards in the Interactive Documentary category. It is such an amazing honor to be chosen for this award as an independent filmmaker and journalist. Congrats to the whole Hollow team and McDowell County community. Check out the winning projects here.
Below, a jury member reflects on why Hollow was chosen for 3rd Prize:
“Some of the most impressive elements of Hollow are the depth of the content, the richness of the content. The characters that are portrayed are totally believable and I think it’s these small stories told in a big way…it’s not a large production piece but it has that feeling, it feels very much as if it was created by people who care about the subject that they are documenting.”
