2018 Meitar Award for Excellence in Photography

The Meitar Award is an international prize awarded for excellence in the field of photography, an initiative of PHOTO IS:RAEL and the Zvi and Ofra Meitar Family Fund.

Now on its third year, the Meitar Award is awarded to a photographer whose work has demonstrated excellence in the field of photography.

The winner will receive a $14,000 grant for the production of a solo exhibition at next year’s festival, while works from all shortlisted candidates will be exhibited during the festival as well as at the Head On Photo Festival in Sydney, Australia during 2019.

The jury, compiled of internationally renowned professionals, will select a shortlist of 20 finalists whose works will be presented in a group exhibition at the Israel Photography Festival in Tel Aviv during the month of November 2018.

By submitting your work, you have the opportunity to showcase it to a world-class jury, and a chance to win the grant for your own solo exhibition.
