Marie Hald selected for the 6x6 Global Talent Program

Even though Marie Hald graduated back in 2013 and we can't call her a DMJX student any more , we're happy to see her selected for the World Press Photo 6x6 Talent Program in Europe.

 

One of the pictures from Marie Hald's story "Bonnie", which was a part of her winning port folio.

 

And we feel we have a small share in Marie's succes, since a part of her winning port folio is the 7th term project "Bonnie" made at DMJX.

 

This week, the 6 selected European talents of the 3rd edition of the 6x6 Global Talent Program take over our the Wolrd Press Photo Instagram - and Marie Hald was the first one to share two of her stories. One of them was the story of "Bonnie".
