The director of PHotoEspaña, Claude Bussac, has announced the awards at Matadero Madrid with the presence of the top winners, Graciela Iturbide and Chema Conesa and the rest of the winning photographers and sponsors of the awards.

PHotoEspaña Baume & Mercier Award 2010 has gone to the photographer Graciela Iturbide (Mexico City, 1942). The photographer receives this award as recognition of her more than 40 years of professional career, in which she has become a fundamental figure of contemporary photography. Her images, full of beauty and power, have captured people and places of the whole world where she has acceded in a way close to the Anthropology and always from the respect. Iturbide, through tools like the patience and the invisibility reveals her amazing realities that spread beyond the borders of her natal country.

The prize endowed with 12.000 € for purchasing of work, a exclusive trophy designed by Eduardo Arroyo and a watch of the brand Baume & Mercier, has been awarded before to the photographers Malick Sidibé, Martin Parr, Robert Frank, Hiroshi Sugimoto, William Klein, William Eggleston, Helena Almeida, Nan Goldin, Duane Michals, Chema Madoz, Luis Gonzalez Palma and Josef Koudelka in recognition of their important role in the international photographic panorama.

Bartolomé Ros Award to the best Spanish career in photography, endowed with 12.000 €, has gone to Chema Conesa. The jury made up Rosa Ros, person in charge of Bartolomé Ros's legacy; Isabel Muñoz, photographer andBartolomé Ros Award winner in 2009; Rafael Levenfeld, curator of exhibitions; Pilar Citoler, collector and member of the patronage of the National Museum Center of Art Reina Sofia; and Alberto Anaut, president of PHotoEspaña, have wanted to recognize with this prize his photographic work, with special incident in the portrait; for his direction of the library PHotoBolsillo and for his work as graphical editor, both in press and in the publishing area.

The winner of Discoveries PHE Brugal Extra Viejo Award have been Vanessa Winship for the series Sweet Nothings. The Prize will allow her to expose her work individually in PHotoEspaña 2011. In this series of portraits Winship hoped the symbol of the uniform, the distance in repetition, and the austerity of the landscape would represent one thing. She also seeked the expressions of the girls faces to draw attention to the idea of these young girls poised at the moment “just before”. The moment where possibility lies, a time where the presentation of self, teeters into consciousness.

The jury of Discoveries (Descubrimientos) PHE Brugal Extra Viejo have been made up Francisco Carpio, critic and independent curator; Brett Rogers, the Photographer's Gallery director, from London; and Markus Hartmann, the director of international publications of Hatje Cantz, Ostfildern. In previous editions have received this prize Alejandra Laviada, Yann Gross, Harri Palviranta, Stanislas Guigui, Vesselina Nikolaeva, Comenius Röthlisberger, Pedro Álvarez, Tanit Plana, Sophie Dubosc, Juan de la Cruz Megías, Paula Luttringer and Matías Costa.

Casado Santapau Gallery wins Saab Off Festival Award with the exhibition Yesterday´s Sandwich 1969/70 by Boris Mikhailov. The prize endowed with 6.000 Euros for the adquisition of works, is granted by a jury of experts to one of the galleries of the Off Festival after valuing the approach and artistic value of the authors and the works , as well as the effort of the gallery for presenting a specific project for PHotoEspaña 2010. The jury have been made up Cristina Ros, Director of Es Baluard. Museu D'Art Moderno i Contemporani, from Palma De Mallorca; Michael Ángel García, critic and journalist; and Narcís Pujol, collector.

Yesterday's sandwich 1969/70 discovers an extraordinary world that joins the Soviet Union with the sex and the beauty. The images spring up from the artistic restrictions imposed during the communist period. The work shows Mikhailov's paper as artist, documentary photographer and social observer who shows his rich imagination and practical solutions for the survival in an unstable society.

Elmundo.es People´s Choise Award PHotoEspaña 2010, which the internauts grant of www.phe.es and www.elmundo.es to the best exhibition under the Official Section, has corresponded to the Between Times. Instants, intervals, durations, organized by Banco Santander Foundation and PHotoEspaña and co-produced by Banco Santander Foundation, Museum D'Arte Provincia di Nouro, Center of Art La Regenta / Government of Canary Islands, PHotoEspaña / La Fábrica with the collaboration of the Area of the Arts of the Town Hall of Madrid.

The exhibition, curated by Sérgio Mah will be open at Fernán Gómez Theatre. Center of Art / Banco Santander Foundation until 25th July. Between Times. Instants, intervals, durations is a collective exhibition consisting of over 200 works including photographs, video installations and films which, based on different viewpoints and methods, explore the experience of time. The 17 artists forming part of the exhibition are Ignasi Aballí, Daniel Blaufuks, Iñaki Bonillas, David Claerbout, Tacita Dean, Ceal Floyer, Joachim Koester, Jochen Lempert, Mabel Palacín, Paul Pfeiffer, Steven Pippin, Michael Snow, Clare Strand, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Jeff Wall, Michael Wesely and Erwin Wurm. The whole exhibition creates a show window for visual practices representing time: the paradox between immobility and mobility, works based on sequences or images with a strong narrative thread, works focused on the experience of the memory which recreate events of the past or images which explore the duration and accumulation of time. The starting point for the exhibition is reflection on photography as a common element and tool for various visual art genres and practices, and the confirmation that one of the most distinctive themes of contemporary photography is its relationship with the concept of time.

PHotoEspaña awards eight prizes valued in €32,000 euros which recognise the Festival’s best exhibitions, the year’s most outstanding publications and the professional path of Spanish and international photographers, both well-known and emerging. With these awards the festival recognizes the important function that the publishing industry takes as a way for the diffusion of photography.

Lastly PHotoEspaña and OjodePez Magazine have awarded in 3rd edition of PHotoEspaña OjodePez Human Values Award to the Italian photographer Giuseppe Moccia for his series The Wednesday Kid. The winning work approaches the life of Christopher, a 18-year-old young boy with Down Syndrome. This circumstance positions him at the crossroads of two very different realities. On the one hand, he is able to communicate effectively both verbally and physically. But on the other hand he lacks some of the critical adaptive skills such as self-care, home living and functional academics, daily living skills needed to live, work and play in society. The story of Christopher talks about misunderstanding and vulnerability
