示威抗議和希望帶來變革的年輕活躍份子的角色是2020年參賽作品中常見的主題,也因此成為此次比賽的焦點。在眾多探索該主題的獲獎者中,有受聘於法新社、來自丹麥的尼古拉斯·阿斯弗里(Nicolas Asfouri)的照片系列 ——《Hong Kong Unrest》。

Protests and the role of young activists aiming to bring about change were highlighted by the jury since it was a recurrent theme among the 2020 entries. Among the winners which explored this theme was Hong Kong Unrest, a photo series created by Nicolas Asfouri from Denmark working for AFP.
