Athens Photo World (APW), with a donation by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, is, for the third year, organizing the annual Photojournalism Award for professional photographers living and working in Greece and/or Cyprus. APW will award a 5,000 cash prize to an ongoing or complete project of photojournalism or documentary photography, created after January 2018. Always aiming to promote the work of photographers and photojournalists, and familiarise the public with contemporary photojournalism and its contribution to the recording of history as it unfolds, APW makes it own contribution by encouraging and enhancing their vocation, as well as their ability to remain committed to their work and vision. The winning photographic project will be presented at the next APW in a solo exhibition of the photographer. A new jury will be appointed every year. The panel for 2021 consists of photojournalists Yorgos Karahalis and Simela Pantzartzi, and photography professor Anastasia Markidou. Those interested in participating are invited to submit a portfolio of up to 12 photographs, explanatory text and a brief resume. The winner of the APW 2021 Award will be announced by Dimitris Michalakis, winner of the 2020 Award, at the closing APW 2021 event on May 30, 2021 at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center. Participation in the Athens Photo World Award contest is free.
