Once a year the FotoEvidence Book Award will recognize a documentary project addressing a violation of human rights, a significant injustice, or an assault on human dignity. The selected project will be published in a book, as part of a series of FotoEvidence books dedicated to the work of photographers whose commitment and courage create an awareness of social injustice.
The winning photographer will have their project published as a FotoEvidence book. In addition, one project may be selected for a $1000 support award. This award will be granted for continued work on a project or to a project that does not have enough material to justify a book. Recipients of the Support Award may apply for the FotoEvidence Book Award in the future.
The Book Award and Support Award prize winners and three other projects will be exhibited on the FotoEvidence web site and at a gallery exhibition in New York City during the fall of 2011.
- The competition is open to professional and amateur photographers.
- Submit up to 15 images from one project. If you are selected for the FotoEvidence Book Award you will be asked to submit 100-120 photographs on the same topic.
- $50 entry fee, payable during the online entry process.
