Bart Maat won the ‘Zilveren Camera 2021’ with his photo Omtzigt’s position, role reassigned. In this photo, we see political mediator Kajsa Ollongren rushing to her official car after testing positive for COVID-19. The writing on the documents she is holding under her arm is clearly visible and reads: Omtzigt’s position, role reassigned and Left-wing parties not really supporting each other. This photo had a huge impact, triggering a political crisis and opening a discussion on the current culture of governance.
