Now on its 3rd year, the Meitar Award is awarded to a photographer whose work has demonstrated excellence in the field of photography.

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.
