Médicos del Mundo have recently announced the call for the 17th Luis Valtueña International Humanitarian Photography Award, to denounce the situation of millions of people in the World.
This award comes as a tribute to and in recognition of Luis Valtueña, Flors Sirera, Manuel Madrazo, and Mercedes Navarro, Médicos del Mundo aid workers killed in Rwanda in 1997 and in Bosnia in 1995 while performing their duties as international humanitarian aid workers.
Their memory serves to ensure that each year victims of injustice are brought to light. Give them a voice through your gaze. And in doing so, together, we can bring injustice to an end.
Submitted entries must be related to any of the following themes: humanitarian action, international cooperation and social exclusion — human rights violations, armed conflicts, natural disasters, refugee and immigrant populations, socially excluded groups, etc. — and/or to efforts aimed at building a fairer, more egalitarian world.
The first prize winner in the 17th Luis Valtueña Humanitarian Photography Award competition will receive a project grant worth 6,000 Euro to develop a photo project related to the work of Médicos del Mundo, whether in Spain or another country.
The competition is open to adult amateur and professional photographers of any nationality.
