Détail de l'événement

Applications are now OPEN for the 2018 Philip Jones Griffiths Award.
The award is for documentary photography and is £10,000. The prize must be used to complete a body of work, regardless of what stage the project is in. The subject matter must be related to issues of social and political importance.

When Philip talked about Vietnam he talked about the two approaches to a story, As Philip put it; ‘the choice that every photographer can make is ultimately, do you cover a huge area in a very shallow way, or do you try and concentrate and go deeper’. This award exists to reward exactly the latter. To help photojournalists dig behind the facades of what is happening and reveal the true forces at play.

With the political, economic, social and environmental concerns raging in today’s world, we believe this mission has never been so vital. Through this award we seek to uphold the true spirit of photojournalism. With this in mind we are delighted to announce that the judges for the 2018 Philip Jones Griffiths Award are:

Fred Ritchen
Ian Berry
Paul Moakley
Hannah Watson
Fanny Ferrato
