The Festival of Ethical Photography of Lodi is pleased to present the third edition of the World.Report Award | Italian Award for Photojournalism.
The World.Report Award | Italian Award for Photojournalism 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 2013 is divided in two sessions:
• Master Award: This session is open to all photographers, with no restriction of any kind.
• Spot Light Award: This session is open to all photographers who did not receive one of the following awards before the 1st of April 2013: World Press Photo, W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography, Pulitzer Prize and POYi Picture of the Year, with exception for the multimedia category.
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. Both the awarded works will take part to the Festival of Ethical Photography in Lodi (Italy) with two exhibitions.
