Apply for the KBr Photo Award 2021. In June 2021 Fundación MAPFRE is launching the 1st edition of the KBr Photo Award, a biennial international prize that reaffirms the Fundación’s support for artistic creation. This support takes the form of promoting the winning photographer on a national and international level and furthering their career with a cash prize, an exhibition, and an associated catalog.
- The winner will receive the sum of 25,000 Euros (twenty-five thousand Euros) gross in order to undertake the selected project within 9 months of the official communication to the winner by Fundación MAPFRE in November 2021.

- In addition to the financial award, Fundación MAPFRE will produce and organize an exhibition in Espai 2 of the KBr Barcelona Photo Center in February 2023 which will present the results of the winning project.
