The Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award – in association with FotoDocument – will be granted annually to a professional woman photographer towards the initiation or completion of a compelling and cohesive documentary photo essay which addresses an important social, environmental, economic or cultural issue, whether local or global.
The work should, in part, showcase positive solutions to any issues it raises in order to contribute to constructive photojournalism, in line with the aims of FotoDocument and the wishes of Marilyn Stafford. The Award is reserved solely for documentary photographers working on projects which are intended to make the world a better place and which may be unreported or under-reported.
Women from any stage of their careers are welcome to apply, whether emerging, mid-career or established, but they must have completed at least one documentary photo essay to demonstrate track record. Entrants must be over 18, they may be any nationality and based anywhere in the world.
It is free to submit the initial application to FotoDocument. To be considered for the short-list, eligible applicants will be contacted and asked for a £10 entry fee. Concessions will be considered.
