The Meitar Award is an international prize awarded for excellence in the field of photography, an initiative of PHOTO IS:RAEL, a non-profit community and the Zvi and Ofra Meitar Family Fund.
Now on its 3rd year, the Meitar Award is awarded to a photographer whose work has demonstrated excellence in the field of photography.
By submitting your work, you will have the opportunity to showcase it to a world-class jury, and have the chance to win a grant of $14,000 that includes a one-year long cooperation with a curator and a solo exhibition.
• You may submit 1 entry only.
• All images must be in JPEG/JPG format, at least 1000px on their long side and no bigger than 2mb each.
• There is no restriction to submitting work that has already been part of other photo competitions.
• Any manipulation of the photo is possible.
Judges are looking for a unique and interesting personal language expressed in a body of work. By the terms ‘body of work’ we are referring to a group of separate images united together around a particular theme, or a number of pictures that when shown together make up a cohesive whole.
All works will be judged on originality and fluency. The jury will choose the body of work which in their opinion has the potential to form a part of an upcoming solo exhibition.
The jury, compiled of internationally renowned professionals, will select a shortlist of 20 finalists whose works will be officially announced and presented in a group exhibition at the Israel Photography Festival in Tel Aviv during the month of November 2018. Following the finalists’ exhibition at the International Photography Festival in Tel-Aviv in November 2018, the exhibition will move to Head On in Sydney where it will be exhibited in May 2019.
The early registration fee is $42 per series. Please note that starting from September 7 the entry fee will become $54.
This photography award is open to any photographer.
