The World.Report Award 2013
The Festival of Ethical Photography wants to bring the general public close to ethically significant contents using photography as communication and knowledge means, and to offer different nuances of the fine relationship between ethics, communication and photography. The Festival has come to the attention of the public thanks to the quality of the exhibitions and the participation of worldwide known photographers present in previous editions.
The awards will give attention to works focusing on people and their social and cultural stories; public or private, minor or crucial, big human tragedies or petty daily stories, changes and immutability.
