Young female photographers have until April 30, 2017 to submit their work for the Inge Morath Award.
The 5000 dollar award is granted jointly by the Magnum Foundation and the Inge Morath Foundation. The prize money is given to a female photographer under the age of 30, to help her complete a project. In addition to the winner, the jury selects two finalists whose projects receive an Honourable Mention.
Last year the award went to Daniella Zalcman for her series, Signs of your Identity. Her multiple exposure portraits show indigenous peoples in Canada, who attended so-called Residential Schools. The aim of the school was to separate the children from their parents and from the influence of their native culture.
Born in Austria, Inge Morath was a member of the Magnum Agency for nearly 50 years. The Inge Morath Foundation was created following her death in 2002, to continue supporting her requirement to nurture newcomer talent.
The winner of the award will be announced in July. Further information and rules of participation can be found at: Inge Morath Foundation
