Antonio Gibotta, 'Enfarinat' 2017 Editions print
World Press Photo Foundation Editions offers visual journalism fans a chance to own and display work from their favorite prize-winning photographers.
This photo by Italian photographer Antonio Gibotta shows the Battle of Enfarinats.
Each year on 28 December, residents of Ibi in Spain stage a mock military coup, pelting each other with flour and eggs and letting off firecrackers. A group of men, ‘Els Enfarinats’ (The Floured Ones) take control of the town, pronouncing ridiculous laws and fining citizens who infringe them. Another group, ‘La Oposicio’ (The Opposition) tries to restore order. At the end of the day, the fines are donated to charity.
Reputedly 200 years old, the festival was revived in 1981 after long lying dormant.
