Athens Photo World (APW) aims at promoting the work of photographers and photojournalists, familiarizing the public with contemporary photojournalism and highlighting photojournalism’s contribution to recording history as it is written, in an effort to encourage photojournalists from around the world and support their commitment to their work and vision.
As part of its mission, APW is organizing the annual Photojournalism Award for professional photographers living and working in Greece and/or Cyprus. Now in its second year, APW is implemented with the lead support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
Athens Photo World will award the prize to ongoing or complete photojournalism or documentary photography project, created between January 2018 and July 2020. A new jury is appointed every year. For 2020, the panel consists of photojournalist Louisa Gouliamaki and photographers Yannis Kontos and Pavlos Fysakis.
Those interested are invited to submit a portfolio of twelve (12) photographs, along with an explanatory text and a brief resume. The winner of this year’s award will be announced at a special event at SNFCC (TBA).
Participation in the APW Award contest is free.
