The second Syngenta Photography Award is now open for entries and explores the theme of scarcity and waste. In a world of limited resources, these have become fundamental social, political and economic issues of our times.
The Award invites professional and amateur photographers from all over the world to submit applications in two categories – the Professional Commission and the Open Competition. The Award prize totals $65,000 which includes a $25,000 professional commission for the first prize winner in the professional category to develop a photography project around the theme of the year. An exhibition will be held at Somerset House in London in March 2015, featuring the work of the finalists for the Award as well as images that illustrate the themes that have emerged from the submissions.
Applications to the Syngenta Photography Award must be submitted by completing the online application form at www.syngentaphoto.com. There are no entry fees. The deadline for submissions is 15 September, 2014.
