Award for the Emerging Photojournalist
Three awards will be given. First place will receive a $2,500 grant used to finance a photography project that promotes social change and human rights and will be mentored by Ed Kashi from VII. Second and third place will receive mentoring from well-known photojournalists. The top three entries will be shown at an exhibit in the VII gallery in New York City.
This award is for emerging photojournalists. For the purposes of this call for entries, the term “emerging photojournalist” means a photojournalist who has an accomplished body of photojournalistic work that a) has not yet been exhibited or published widely, b) demonstrates a commitment to human rights and social justice issues, and c) does not have agency representation. There are no age or geographic restrictions.
