Alecsandra Raluca Dragoi, a second-year photography student at the University of Portsmouth, won first prize in the culture category of the 2013 Sony World Photography Awards Youth Award. The Youth Award is open to photographers aged 19 and under.

Alecsandra’s winning photograph will feature in a month-long exhibition of the winners and finalists at Somerset House in London, and will be published in the Sony World Photography Awards book. The image was taken on New Year’s Eve in the city of Botosani, in the Moldavia region of Romania, and features a mask-dance called the ‘Dance of the bear’, a tradition still practised in rural areas. 

Alecsandra is now in the running for Overall Youth Photographer of the Year, which will be selected from the three youth award category winners and announced at the 2013 Sony World Photography Awards gala ceremony on April 25.

The Sony World Photography Awards were launched in 2008 and are run by the World Photography Organisation. The awards are judged by juries selected from the World Photographic Academy and the wider photography industry.
