The Lucas Dolega Association is calling for entries from professional freelance photographers for the seventh edition of its photography awards.
The Lucas Dolega Award will recognize a photographer who often works in dangerous or difficult circumstances demonstrating dedication to democracy and freedom of information.
The Award is open to all professional freelance photographers, without age or country restrictions and participation is free.
Participants must submit a selection of 10 to 20 photos documenting a conflict, revolution, natural or sanitary disaster, or their consequences on civil populations. Entries covering any news relevant to the defense of freedoms and democracy will also qualify.
The winner will receive an endowment of EU€10,000 (US$11,839) and will have his/her work displayed at an exhibition in Paris and published in the Reporters Without Borders album.
The award ceremony will take place at the Mairie de Paris, in January 2018.
Application closes October 30, 2017.
