800 & sensitivity.olekszojda.com proudly announce: IT'S AWESOME TO BE THE WINNER.
Competition info: here [Spanish].
This year's theme was to foster reflection on development in poor countries, cooperation, fight against inequality and social exclusion.
I submitted four pics, all of which you can see below. All shot in Morocco. I decided to organize them according to what I consider to be the main four components of a developed country. Or four components that have to be present so that an underdeveloped country could move forward.
I'm not saying Morocco has them all. I'm just saying I have seen some pieces of each there. Otherwise there would have been nothing to photograph after all.

Once again, I'm in Spain this 15th day of May. The day when Madrid & its main square, Puerta del Sol, became the capital city of European & world protesters. Against the System, in favor of the Change. On the radio they've said today it was even part of "Spanish brand" now.
After Madrid came the others: Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Granada, I've never seen such motivation before among the Spaniards; soon New York had its Occupy Wall Street. A world social movement without precedents.
That May 2011 I went to Plaza del Carmen, a small square in front of Granada's Town Hall. Some of my friends and classmates were already there. And I kept coming almost every day. Today I've only seen a small group of mostly middle-aged people.
Chanting in the same way they always do on such occasions. All of these friends of mine I sat next to on that same square are overseas these days.
