Meet Our MTV Breaks Photographer and Director Winners For MTV Shuga Series 5
Both our brilliant MTV Breaks winners will be joining us on the MTV Shuga set next month in South Africa!
In early December we announced that we were looking for the hottest new talent to join us on the set of the fifth series of MTV Shuga, in South Africa.
We wanted to find a photographer to capture all the action behind the scenes on the MTV Shuga set, and a director to direct a whole scene of the show.
We received thousands of entries and our experts for both categories were incredibly impressed by the high standard of the work submitted and by the passion of the candidates, but unfortunately there can only be one winner for each.
Though it was a difficult task to turn away so much talent, we have finally selected our fabulously talented winners. They are:
MLU GODOLA, 21, South Africa
Mlu graduated last year from AFDA film school in South Africa. The film he submitted, Sicela Amanzi, told the tragic tale of a family who live in a community suffering from drought.
We were so impressed by the film concept, Mlu’s brilliant directing, and by his clear commitment and passion. We can’t wait to have him on the MTV Shuga set next month!
ESEOSA IKPONMWOSA, 24, Nigeria
Eseosa finished university in 2015 and has been freelancing as a photographer for a couple of years. During this time he has built an amazing visual diary of his captivating street photography in Lagos.
We were massively impressed by Eseosa’s use of composition and lighting in his photographs, and his winning entry photo expertly captured movement.
Stay tuned for interviews and updates on Mlu and Eseosa as they prepare to venture onto the MTV Shuga set next month!
