The Worldwide Photography Gala Awards organize the second edition of THE JACOB RIIS AWARD (named after the Danish-American photographer, 1849-1914) benefiting Save the Children Foundation. It will focus in portfolios (minimum of 8 and maximum of 12 images) inviting photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought. Traditional, contemporary, avant-garde, creative and experimental works that include old and new processes, mixed techniques, and challenging personal, emotional or political statements will be welcome. The Award is open worldwide to all professional and amateur photographers working with digital or traditional photography or combinations of both. There is no theme for this Award, and the images will be evaluated as a cohesive body of work (a theme or images representing the artistic trajectory of the photographer), rather than individual images.
The Award will consist in a cash prize of $ 3,000. A selected image of the winner portfolio will be featured in the cover of the Book The Jacob Riis Award 2011.
The Jacob Riis Awards will be juried by Chris Steele-Perkins, UK (Magnum Photos), Tim Anderson, USA (publisher Red Dog Journal), Larry Padgett, USA (founder and former Managing Director of The Center for Fine Art Photography), Sucheta Das, India (Photographer), and Julio Hardy, Argentina/Spain (Managing Director, WPGA).
