Winning Project:
New Beginning for Kosovo
Andrew Testa's "New Beginning for Kosovo" will focus on the build-up to this year's resolution of the final status of Kosovo which will determine who will control the future of the troubled province. Testa will cover the precarious peace that was brokered in Kosovo in 1999 and how the outcome of this year's referendum will affect the wider region.

Born in London, UK, Andrew Testa began his photographic career in 1992, working as a freelance for The Guardian and The Observer. Throughout the decade, he documented the growing Environmental Protest Movement in Britain and in 1999, Testa shifted his attention to international current affairs covering the war in Kosovo. Later that same year, he moved to the Balkans to cover events throughout Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East.

Testa's photographs and stories have been published in various prestigious publications such as Newsweek, Stern, Geo, Paris Match, Time, Der Spiegel, The Sunday Times Magazine, Mother Jones among many others. Today, he is a regular contributor to The New York Times, The Guardian and The Observer, while also serving as the Director of Photography of Gazeta Express, a daily newspaper in Kosovo.

Testa has been recognized as an accomplished photojournalist and received numerous awards. In 1997, he was named News Photographer of the Year from the One World Media Awards. In the same year, he was one of twelve photographers chosen for the 1997 World Press Photo Masterclass held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and also won the Nikon Photo Essay Award. In 1999, Testa was recognized as Photojournalist of the Year from Amnesty International Awards for his work in Kosovo.

In 2002, Testa received first place in the Daily Life Stories category from World Press Photo and also won Honorable Mention from the Hansel Mieth Awards. Most recently, he received third prize in the 2005 International Documentary Photography Award and his second Award of Excellence from the 2005 Pictures of the Year competition, first awarded in 2001.
