Finnish photographer Esko Mannikko has been awarded the 2008 Deutsche Boerse Photography Prize. Mannikko won the prize for his retrospective "Cocktails 1990–2007," which ran at Millesgarden gallery in Stockholm, Sweden, from September 1 to November 4, 2007. Other shortlisted photographers were John Davies, Jacob Holdt, and Fazal Sheikh.

The prize honors a contemporary photographer who has made the most significant tangible contribution, defined as either an exhibition or publication, to the medium in Europe in the past year. Originally created in 1996 by the Photographers' Gallery in London, it has been sponsored by the Deutsche Boerse since 2005. The winner receives £30,000 (U.S. $60,000).

The exhibition in tandem with the prize can be viewed at the Photographers' Gallery until April 6, after which it will travel to the photography forum C/O Berlin and the Deutsche Boerse Group headquarters in Frankfurt.
