Athens Photo World 2019 invites a call for International Photojournalism Award. With the donation of Stavros Niarchos Foundation, Athens Photo World organizes the annual Yannis Behrakis International Photojournalism Award for professional photojournalists. At its inaugural event, Athens Photo World will award a 15,000 € cash prize to a completed project of reportage or documentary photography, created within the last 3 years.
Photojournalists are eligible for the International Photojournalism Award if they meet the following criteria:
Those wishing to participate should send a portfolio up to twenty-four (24) photographs, with captions or file info and a supporting text/story (200-250 words) to the submissions link. Jury members will receive the submitted works, without any info regarding the entrants’ identity, directly from the Webhosting company. The winning photographic project will receive an opportunity for exhibition at the next Athens Photo World (2020) festival at an individual exhibition of the photographer.
Athens Photo World will accept the submission for the International Photojournalism Award until Sunday, August 25, 2019. After crossing the deadline, the submission is not eligible for participation.
