Médicos del Mundo (MdM) opens the call for its 23rd Luis Valtueña Humanitarian Photography Award competition, inviting amateur and professional photographers worldwide 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 an in-depth report composed of at least 50 photos and pertinent video/audio pieces — 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.
Submitted photographs must narrate or tell a story related to these topics: humanitarian action, international cooperation, social exclusion, human rights violations, armed conflicts, natural disasters, refugee and immigrant populations or socially excluded groups.
Only photos taken between January 2019 and October 2019, which have not been previously entered, will be accepted.
The awards ceremony will be held at a public event during January or February 2020 at a time and place to be determined.
