The WARS Photography Award acknowledges the significance of visual storytelling in documenting the impact of wars and conflicts and seeks to support photojournalists who use their camera to inform the public about these realities. We look forward to receiving submissions that capture the raw and emotional impact of wars and conflicts, and to celebrating the winners of this year's award.
The WARS Photography Award is proud to announce a new call for photojournalists who cover wars and conflicts. After the successful editions of 2019 and 2021, the WARS Photography Award is once again seeking to support photojournalists from around the world who work in hostile environments to offer critical information on the impact of conflicts on communities.
The first-place winner will receive a cash prize of 2000€, and two runner-up winners will receive a cash prize of 1000€ each. The winning entries will also be featured in a touring exhibition which will open in Mantova in September 2023.
The association "46° Parallelo" was founded in Trento in 2008 by a group of journalists and reporters engaged in documenting conflict zones. In the last fifteen years, the association has been involved in several projects in schools, universities, and museums, including talks, lectures, photography exhibitions, films, and documentaries. "46° Parallelo" is the publisher of the annual publication, "The Atlas of Wars and Conflict," a map of conflicts around the world, in collaboration with Amnesty International, UNHCR, and MSF. For more information, please visit atlanteguerre.it. The WARS Photography Award is a project in partnership with Montura, Fondazione Trento, and Intersos NGO. The Director of the Prize is the award-winning photographer Fabio Bucciarelli who is responsible for evaluating the eligibility criteria of the contestants and the neutrality of the jury.
The WARS Photography Award is accepting photo-reportages for its single category this year. Each reportage should consist of 12 to 20 photographs on a single subject related to wars and conflicts, and must have been taken after February 1, 2022. Both published and unpublished stories are eligible for submission.
All submitted works will be reviewed by a panel of experienced judges, who will select the winners based on the quality, creativity, and impact of the submissions. The judging process will be fair and impartial, and the decisions of the judges will be final.
