The MPA is thrilled to announce INDIFFERENCE as our first Grand Prize winner. Stefano Pessarelli's piece is a soulful and inspiring image of innocence, a powerful moment in time between the photographer and the two children. The contrast between the delight of the girl showing her toy and the seeming "Indifference" of the boy in the background digs deep into the heart of childhood, friendship and, indeed, humanity itself. - Founder Daniel Berman
"The eyes are the window to your soul" - that's what I like about it, the pure innocence in them. I knew it was "the" shot immediately when I saw it. - Jurist Aik Beng Chia
The mobile phone camera has revolutionized photojournalism. This picture is a wonderful example of why you should always have your camera with you. A powerful and relevant image. - Jurist Dixon Hamby
