Congratulations to Initials LA photographer Jef Boes on winning the 52nd Belfius Press award for 'Best press photo of the year'.

With his image 'Tricolore' of politician Bart De Wever, Jef captured Antwerp's mayor during a television debate between him and oppenent Magnette. De Wever was drinking his cup of coffee when a journalist came in and told him it was showtime. The journalist probably didn't realise he had just created a decor that resembles the Belgian flag. Instantly the image became symbolic. De Wever, a man with a plan to separate Belgium was standing right in the middle of our tricolor flag that stands for unity.
