PM Tsipras Welcomes Greek Pulitzer Prize Winners, Hails Solidarity Shown to Refugees

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras congratulated on Wednesday the three Greek photojournalists who shared the Pulitzer Prize for 2016 for their coverage of the refugee crisis, during a meeting at Maximos Mansion.    
The Thomson Reuters team of Yiannis Behrakis, chief photographer for Greece and Cyprus, Alkis Konstantinidis and Alexandros Avramidis were the winners in the Breaking News Photography category “for gripping photographs, each with its own voice, that follow migrant refugees hundreds of miles across uncertain boundaries to unknown destinations.”
Addressing his guests, Tsipras said that apart from doing their mission, they’re also creating art which has a special value when it presents the hard reality but is also of a high level. He also took the opportunity to hail the way Greek islanders have handled the risisng refugee flows, saying they have created a very positive image for the country and its values.
“Along with the professionalism of Greek photojournalists, the value of solidarity is also highlighted. We warmly congratulate them,” Tsipras tweeted after the meeting.
