Фестиваль Этической Фотографии в Лоди (The Festival of Ethical Photography of Lodi, Италия) представляет пятую премию World Report Award.

Фестиваль создан на добровольных началах и славится качеством своих выставок и участием фотографов с мировым именем. Его цель: представить фотоконтент, имеющий важное моральное и нравственное значение для общества, а также показать нюансы взаимосвязи фотографии, этики и коммуникации. Для фестиваля фотожурналистика - прежде всего жанр историй, которые заставляют задуматься (даже если примеры такой фотожурналистики всё сложнее увидеть в СМИ).

Премия World Report Award открыта для любителей и профессионалов, для всех, кто создает документальные и социальные фоторепортажи. Организаторы поощряют фотоработы, которые сфокусированы на человеке, социальных и культурных историях любой значимости: от больших трагедий до будничных рассказов об изменениях или их отсутствии.

Требуются истории, рассказанные через убедительные образы, подходящие под определение “социальный репортаж”. Фестиваль поддерживает фотографов, работающих в этом жанре.  

Премия состоит из трех категорий:

  • Master Award: для всех фотографов без ограничений. Репортажи должны состоять не менее чем из 20 и не более чем из 40 изображений. Награда: 6000 евро.

  • Spot Light Award: для фотографов, которые до 1 апреля 2015 не получали следующих наград - World Press Photo, W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography, Pulitzer Prize, POYi Picture of the Year and World.Report Award (за исключением категории multimedia). Участники этой сессии так же могут претендовать на  Master Award. Награда: 3000 евро.

  • Short Story Award: для всех фотографов без ограничений. Короткие репортажи должны состоять не менее чем из 5 и не более чем из 10 изображений. Награда: 1000 евро и Nikon D610.

Помимо трех наград, по решению жюри и при согласии фотографа, работы могут войти в официальную программу фестиваля.

Оригинальный пресс-релиз:

World Report Award 2015 | Documenting Humanity

The Festival of Ethical Photography of Lodi is pleased to present the fifth edition of the World.Report Award.

The Festival of Ethical Photography was created and is managed purely on voluntary basis. Its purpose is to bring the general public close to ethically significant contents using photography as communication and knowledge means, and to offer different nuances of the fine relationship between ethics, communication and photography. The Festival has come to the attention of the public thanks to the quality of the exhibitions and the participation of worldwide known photographers present in previous editions. The Festival wants to be at the service of photojournalism, of the kind of photography that tells stories, that makes you think and that, especially in Italy, is more and more difficult to be seen in the media.

The World.Report Award aims at a new form of social commitment through photography. The award is open to both professional and amateur photographers from all over the world whose work focuses on social and documentary reportages. The award will give attention to works focusing on people and their social and cultural stories; public or private, minor or crucial, big human tragedies or petty daily stories, changes and immutability.

The story the photographer will be able to tell through compelling images that entail the definition of ‘social reportage’ will be the core of the jury’s key to interpretation.

The World.Report Award 2015 is divided in three sessions:

  • Master Award: This section is open to all photographers, with no restriction of any kind. Reportages must consist of min 20 and max 40 images. The prize will be of 6,000 Euros.

  • Spot Light Award: This section is open to all photographers who did not receive one of the following awards before the 1st of April 2015: World Press Photo, W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography, Pulitzer Prize, POYi Picture of the Year and World.Report Award, with exception for the multimedia category. Reportages must consist of min 20 and max 40 images. The photographers, who apply to this session, can also apply to the Master Award session. The prize will be of 3,000 Euros.

  • Short Story Award: This section is open to all photographers, with no restriction of any kind. Reportages must consist of min 5 and max 10 images. The prize will be of 1,000 Euros and a Nikon D610 (body only).

 

On top of the three awards, and if the jury, at its own discretion, believes that some works are worth it, the jury itself will propose the works to the organization of the Festival, if coherent with the theme of the Festival 2015, to have it included in the official programme of the Festival.  The jury will first ask the photographer.

 

The awards are intended to sustain photographers who care about this kind of photography that brings to the attention of the public stories related to men and that often are not paid properly. All the awarded works will take part to the Festival of Ethical Photography in Lodi 2015 (Italy) with three exhibitions.
