The photographer Wilton de Sousa Júnior said on Thursday that the photograph for which he won the International Prize for Journalism King of Spain wanted to "portray" the difficult political moment that the president Rousseff lived in August last year with an image "strong ".

"The president went through a very difficult time. I was looking for a photo that could synthesize this moment," said Wilton Junior Efe, a reference image that Dilma seems to be transfixed by a sword of a soldier in an official ceremony.

The photograph was published in the newspaper "O Estado de S. Paulo" on August 21, 2011 and 31st of the same month in the magazine "Look", which chose it as "the image of the week." The record was made during the ceremony of marlin to 441 cadets at the Military Academy of Agulhas Negras, in Resende, Rio de Janeiro in the south, Dilma days after losing his fifth minister in less than eight months of government, four of them involved in charges of corruption.

Wilton Junior said he planned to do a picture of the sword before the ceremony of the Military Academy, believing that the image could translate a "very strong political image." The jury of the 29th edition of the award, sponsored annually by the Efe and the Spanish Agency of International Cooperation for Development (AECID), rated "especially the ability of the photographer to capture a moment of perfect timing which results surprising."

At 37, the photographer said he was "very happy and radiant" for having received the distinction, the first 19 years in his international career after being a finalist in the 2003 Prix Ayrton Senna with a photograph entitled "Urban Hunt". The winner was informed by Efe on the prize by a telephone call when he was in fields covering damage caused by rains last week.
