Vagabond, Bulgaria's English Monthly, sponsored the national photographic exhibition Kukerlandia 2007, held from 17 February until 3 March in the George Papazov Art Gallery in Yambol. The event, organised by the Yambol and Tundzha municipalities and the Regional Tourist Association as part of a national Mummers' Festival, comprised 50 photographs of mummers' performances by 35 Bulgarian and foreign authors.
The first prize went to Krasimir Andonov from Sofia. Tihomir Penov and Desislava Genkova, both from Sofia, got the second and third prize, respectively.
Vagabond made its own choices. The winner of our Special Prize was American Patrick Love. You will be seeing more of his work in the months to come. We also awarded Tihomir Genov and Desislava Genkova - both very interesting photographers with a sharp eye for the unusual and out-of-the-way.
