[verder persbericht is in het engels]

The Festival of Ethical Photography of Lodi was created and is managed purely on a voluntary basis. Its purpose is to bring the general public close to ethically significant contents using photography as a means of communication and knowledge, analysing different nuances of the fine relationship between ethics, communication and photography.

The Festival has come to the attention of the public thanks to the quality of its exhibitions and the participation of worldwide known photographers present in previous editions. The Festival wants to be at the service of photojournalism, of the kind of photography that tells stories, that makes you think and that is more and more difficult to be seen in the media.

The World.Report Award aims at a new form of social commitment through photography. The award is open to both professional and amateur photographers from all over the world. The award will give attention to works focusing on people and their social or cultural stories; public or private, minor or crucial, major human tragedies or smaller daily life stories, changes and immutability.

The main focus of the evaluation of the reportages (Master, Spot Light, Short Story, European Photographers sections) , will be the story that the project tells through compelling images submitted.

For the first time, we have introduced a new category: the Single Shot category. The award will focus on the image’s ability to convey a powerful message, embodying the theme in a single shot.

World.Report Award 2017 members of the jury will be communicated at a later date. The jury will be composed of experts in the field.

    The winning photographer will have the reportage exhibited during the Festival of Ethical

    Photography in 2017 and during the ManifestO Festival in 2018.

  • ●  Single Shot Award: Fertile Solidarity

    The theme for this new Single Shot section aims to be a hymn to solidarity that generates future progress. The spirit of togetherness is realized through actions which bring about and support the progress of our entire society.
    We perceive solidarity as an act of growth that stimulates, builds and inspires change.

    We are looking for images that represent this perspective in a creative way: this could be from the many activities carried out by humanitarian associations, to personal relationships among people, from treatment and pain relief to the sense of belonging to the great World community.
    Share your vision of Fertile Solidarity with us.

    The work will be represented in a single shot.
