Magnum Photography Awards 2016
LensCulture and legendary photography agency Magnum Photos are joining forces to produce one of the best opportunities for photographers all over the world to be recognized and rewarded for their talent.
2017 marks a significant year for Magnum as they celebrate 70 years since four pioneering photographers toasted the conception of an independent photo agency. This landmark anniversary will be marked by a series of international events, projects and partnerships, with an emphasis on the agency’s digital presence and the photography community at large.
Ahead of the anniversary celebrations, Magnum Photos and LensCulture invite you to enter our inaugural Magnum Photography Awards, an international call to discover the best photographers from all over the world. Our distinguished jury will select 12 Winners and 20 Finalists from Documentary, Street, Portrait, Fine Art, Photojournalism and Open categories. In addition, the jury will select 7 photographers as “Jurors’ Picks” and give out 5 “Student Spotlight” awards to young, up-and-coming talents.
Winners, finalists and top-rated photographers will gain access to an unprecedented level of global exposure and recognition from two of the largest organizations in the photo industry, with a combined audience of over 4 million.
