I received five awards in the Norwegian Picture of the Year, which was handed out during a ceremony in Oslo on March 9. I was awarded Photojournalist of the Year for the third time out of four with a portfolio of five images and a first price in the International documentary category with the White Rage-project. I also received first prize in the Portrait category with an image of Lene Marie Fossen.

I addition I was also awarded third prize in the International documentary category with the story Hate in the US, also nominated for the World Press Photo Contemporary category and a second prize in the International news reportage category with a story from a Russian nazi wedding.
