Luis Valtueña Photography Award 2022 now is over!

Luis Valtueña Photography Award 2022: Médicos del Mundo Spain announces the 26th 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.

Short description

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. At least 50% of the images must have been taken between 2021 and 2022.

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 March 2023.

Who may enter?

This competition is open worldwide to 18 years or older amateur and professional photographers.


The winner of the prize will receive a gross amount of 6,000 Euro. In addition, the winner and the finalists will also have their work published in the catalog and displayed in the collective and itinerant exhibition that Médicos del Mundo Spain shall produce. The organization will cover the travel and lodging for two consecutive nights of the chosen entrants to attend the award ceremony and inauguration of the exhibition, scheduled for March 2023.
