The finalists of the Children in Need Media Award have been announced. Andrea Diefenbach, Stefan Finger and Christian Werner have been nominated in the category of photography.
Andrea Diefenbach was nominated for her project "Country without Parents". The series was created in Moldavia, where many parents leave their children behind in a bid to earn money as illegal immigrants in Italy.
Stefan Finger travelled to the Philippine city of Cebu, where he documented the lives of those working in the world's largest landfill for his series "Villages in the Garbage".
For his project "The Children and the Dust", Christian Werner went to Iraq where damaged military vehicles have become children's playgrounds.
The official awards ceremony will take place in Berlin in November 2013 – the winner stands to receive 2,500 Euros prize money.
