The Jacob Riis Award is organized by WPGA following its partnership with Save the Children, and sponsored by Eyemazing Magazine. 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 the publication of the winner portfolio in Eyemazing Magazine (to be published during 2010).
The Award will be selected by the jurors Susan Zadeh (Eyemazing, Netherlands), Paul Cava (Art Dealer, US), Per Valentin (Photographer, Chairman of the Danish Association of Photography, Denmark), and Alexander Scholz (Director Galerie Vevais, Germany).
