Call for submissions: FotoEvidence Book Award with World Press Photo
The call for submissions for the 2020 FotoEvidence Book Award with World Press Photo is now open, with a deadline for applications of 10 October. The award recognises a documentary photographer whose project demonstrates courage and commitment in addressing a violation of human rights, a signiﬁcant injustice, or an assault on human dignity. The selected project will be published as part of a series of FotoEvidence books dedicated to long-form projects of documentary photographers working in the humanistic tradition.
In 2019, Australian photojournalist Patrick Brown took out top honours with his project, No Place on Earth, which documents the world's fastest growing refugee crisis and one of the most rapid human exodus in recent history. Risking death at sea or on foot, more than 700,000 Rohingya fled the destruction of their homes and persecution in the northern Rakhine State of Myanmar.
