Luis Valtueña Humanitarian Photography Award 2023 is now open for entries!
Luis Valtueña Humanitarian Photography Award 2023: Médicos del Mundo Spain announces the 27th Luis Valtueña International Humanitarian Photography Award, aimed at recognizing and disseminating the best images that singularly demonstrate social inequities, injustices, and/or human rights abuses, or the situations that either foster or fight them.
The Luis Valtueña International Humanitarian Photography Award, organized by Médicos del Mundo recognizes the work of professional photographers who, through their images, denounce the situation of millions of people in the World.
Submitted images must narrate a story related to one of these topics: health, natural disasters, humanitarian action, international cooperation, social exclusion, violation of human rights, armed conflicts, vulnerable groups, refugee and/or migrant populations.
Special attention will be paid to those stories of interest that are not covered or disseminated enough or are little known, to contribute to their dissemination and reflection.
The Jury, composed by professional photographers and a representation of Médicos del Mundo, will look for those projects that, beyond their thematic relevance or their nature of complaint, stand out for their technical quality, impact, creativity and originality both in treatment and approach.
The awards ceremony and exhibition will be held in 2024.
➜ Entrants should provide personal and contact details, a biography, a series of 5 to 10 photographs, and a description of the project presented with captions. At least 50% of the images must have been taken between 2022 and 2023.
➜ Entry forms can be filled out in Spanish or English.
The competition is open to 18 years or older amateur and professional photographers of any nationality who are familiar with the documentary and / or photojournalistic approach.
The winner will receive a cash prize of 6,000 EUR and have their work published in the catalog and displayed in a collective and itinerant exhibition organized by Médicos del Mundo Spain. Travel and lodging expenses for two nights will be covered for chosen entrants attending the award ceremony and exhibition opening. The chosen images and their authors will be widely promoted for at least one year through various channels.
There is no entry fee to participate!
