The Solas Photography Prize 2015

The Solas Photography Prize 2015

A new international photography award
– $11,500 in prizes
– an exhibition in a major photography gallery and
– publication in a leading photography magazine.

The Solas Prize is a new collaboration between Source magazine and the Gallery of Photography Ireland. It will be judged by a panel of five curators / editors from leading photography organisations in Chicago, Salzburg, Rotterdam, Dublin and Belfast. The deadline for submissions is 19 July. The winners will be announced in December this year.

The Solas Prize brings together two formerly separate photography awards: the Source-Cord prize and the Gallery of Photography Artist’s Award. Previous Source-Cord judges have included Charlotte Cotton, Diana Edkins, Kate Bush, Stephanie Grebe and Mariko Takeuchi. The first Source-Cord Prize was won by Eva Stenram for her work ‘Drape’. In 2014 Takashi Arai won the award with his project ‘Exposed in a Hundred Suns’.
