Marilou Liotet, Spéos 2018 Alumni, won the Paris Match Trophy with her series “Trucker you said? ».
Marilou went on the road for a week with Justine, a young woman in her thirties, who is one of the few road users in France. She immersed herself in her daily life as a truck driver to understand this choice of life. Through the portrait of Justine who composes this photographic series, she evokes the strong and independent woman who overturns the clichés of a male world.

The Public Prize was awarded to Antoine Martin, Spéos 2019 Alumni, for his series “Mixed Martial Arts: Singular Values“.
Antoine followed Samir, a professional fighter in MMA, a controversial sport in France since training is allowed while competition is prohibited. His report aims to show that beyond its violent image, MMA is a sport open to all and requires real physical and mental preparation.
