S' Ardia. Barbagia is a large mountainous area in the central-eastern part of Sardinia. One of these villages is Sedilo, where every year on July 6, a hundred of the best, most daring and brave horse riders participate in a wild and unrestrained race called the S'ardia. They don't run for money or glory, but to show their devotion to a warrior saint, Saint Constantine. Officially, he is not a saint, but he is a saint to Sedilo's people. Each year, they celebrate his deeds through this grand spectacle. Riders race down the hill at full gallop, pounding towards the narrow entrance below the Arc of Constantine amid rifle shots and clouds of dust. The speed is crazy and a mistake can be lethal. It has been, many times: the last death occurred in 2009. As I stood there, dust filled air, harsh with the smell of gunpowder and the crowd's frenzy. © Mattia Vacca, winner in the Cultural Heritage category

Jack J. Diamond. Miami FL, USA. “I got captured and the US army sent a telegram to my home stating that I’d gone missing in action in Germany. It was received by my sister, who was 13, and she did not want to upset my mother, who was already a widow, so she kept it to herself. My mother only found out when the army sent another telegram saying I’d become a prisoner of war..."© Sasha Maslov, winner of the Photostories category
Ye YuLiang. Beijing, China. “My name is Ye YuLiang. I was born in March 1922 in Beijing. My ancestral home is in Fuzhou city, Fujian province. My grandfather was a Jinshi in the former Qing Dynasty, which meant that he was an advanced scholar who passed the triennial court exam, a very high honor. But after the Nationalists took power and the Qing Dynasty collapsed, my dad lost his job and the family moved to Beijing, where I was born and went to primary school and middle school. When the Marco Polo Bridge Incident happened on July 7, 1937, I happened to be on my way to Nanjing. I left Beijing on 6th of July and arrived in Nanjing on the 8th. I had an uncle there, and we were afraid the war would come to Nanjing too, so together with my uncle and his wife, I fled to Fuzhou, my ancestral home…” © Sasha Maslov, winner of the Photostories category
Anna Nho, Almaty, Kazakhstan. "In 1937, lots of Korean families were deported from the USSR. Mine was moved from Vladivostok to Kazakhstan. We lived in tents; it was so cold that someone died every day. My uncle couldn’t take it, so he walked to Moscow to see Stalin. They’d met before. We all thought he died, but he made it. He dressed as a homeless man to get into the Kremlin. Finally, he got in—and Stalin remembered him. Stalin sent him to help people grow rice in the Caucasus. Later, we saw in the paper that he was looking for us, so we went to join him. © Sasha Maslov, winner of the Photostories category
