On November 14, 2008, during the opening of the second edition of
the ”ARDHJE” Award for Contemporary Art, the international jury
selected Leonard Qylafi as winner of the year’s prize, with the following
reasoning:

”His photos are able to reveal the complex structures of places and
emotions by using a limited number of elements. Rich and at the same
time very simple, the images of Leonard Qylafi are evocative and
touching. The intimacy of the individual memory becomes universal
through the use of light and his curious gaze upon life.

The event was made possible through the generous support of:
ADMIRAL –Novomatic Group of Companies, Austrian Embassy in
Tirana, Italian Institute of Culture, Embassy of Sweden in Tirana and
Moving Culture, in collaboration with the Foundation for Civil Society,
New York and the Academy of Fine Arts.
