If you love telling stories about people and their everyday life through photographs and pictures, this is your chance to live a truly unique experience – a real adventure!

The images can be in either colour or black & white. The theme is free but the style should reflect the direct and dynamic language of photo-reportage, heightened by an optimistic and sensitive approach, which is that specifically advocated by the agency Photoaid.


  • First place: The winner of the contest will have the opportunity to live a unique experience working alongside a PhotoAid photographer during a workof reportage abroad. The mission will take place before the end of October 2010 and will last from 6 to 8 days. All travelling and living expenses will be covered entirely by our Association. The winner will also receive a professional digital reflex camera (NIKON – D300S).
  • Second place: Scholarship for a course in Reportage named “Topic Session” organized by the Italian Institute of Photography (academic year 2010/2011).
  • Third place: Scholarship for a workshop on reportage in Tuscany organized by the PhotoAid Association (September and October 2010).

Number of photographs: We require the presentation of 10 pictures alongside a brief description of the work submitted (title of the project and a comment of maximum 15 pages) and a legend for each picture. Each competitor can only present one project. The reportage will not necessarily need have been performed over the last year. Colored or black-and-white photographs are allowed.
