The second cycle of the 6x6 Global Talent Program continues – the World Press Photo Foundation has announced its latest selection of emerging artists: Amilton Neves Cuna (Mozambique), Esther Ruth Mbabazi (Uganda), Etinosa Yvonne (Nigeria), M'hammed Kilito (Morocco), Seif Kousmate (Morocco), and Zinyange Auntony (Zimbabwe).
Launched in 2018, the Global Talent Program aims to connect visual storytellers from around the world with a global audience. In the course of each cycle, six promising artists are chosen from each of the following six regions: Southeast Asia and Oceania; South America; Europe; Africa; North and Central America; Asia.
The jury is chaired by Lars Boering (managing director of the World Press Photo Foundation), and completed by four independent selectors for each region – in this case Azu Nwagbogu (founder and director of the African Artists’ Foundation), Davina Jogi (founder of the Zimbabwe Association of Female Photographers), Christina Rizk (photojournalist) and photographer Sarah Waiswa.
