Médicos del Mundo (MdM) has opened the call for its 21st Luis Valtueña Humanitarian Photography Award competition, inviting amateur and professional photographers from around the world to participate.
The Award has been initiated to denounce the situation of millions of people in the World and bring attention to human rights violation, social exclusion, armed conflicts, natural disasters and immigration.
The winner will receive a project grant of 6,000 Euro to develop a photography project composed of at least 50 photos and a 30 minute video shoot related to the work of Médicos del Mundo, whether in Spain or in other countries.
Along with the winning entries, the organizers will select other photos from all those submitted to form part of a traveling exhibition.
Each participant is allowed to submit a maximum of ten photographs, which can be distinct or part of a series. Only photos taken between January 2016 and October 2017, which have not been previously entered, will be accepted.
The awards ceremony will be held at a public event during January or February 2018 at a time and place to be determined.
