ArtèFoto | International Festival of Photojournalism (1st to 12th June 2011, Province of Ancona) exhibits photo-reportages from around the world prioritising stories not yet published in Italy. The festival hosts round tables with the authors of reportages and organizes multidisciplinary events around photojournalism (video projections, stories, workshop,etc.).

The World.Report Award - Italian Photojournalism Award aims at a new form of social commit- ment 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 focussing 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 cash award of 3,000 will be granted to the photographer whose work contributes to bring- ing people’s attention to significant social and human events and who are not usually adequately rewarded.

The winning reportage will be exhibited during the two festivals as an integral part of the 2011 edi- tions.wardSubmission Guidelines
