The $10.000 


Celebrating photographers who challenge how we view the world.

THE BARTUR AWARD is open to those working in the fine arts, documentary, fashion, advertising, journalism and all other fields of photographic image making.  You can echo the achievements of those who came before us.  Or you can “push the envelope” with innovation.  Whether you are inspired by your personal experience or by the urgent issues of our time, you are invited to share your vision.

THE AWARD calls on all PROFESSIONALS and STUDENTS to submit their work in two different categories with LARGE CASH PRIZE of $10.000 for professional photographers and $3.000 for students.

THIS YEAR THE BARTUR AWARD is eager to support photographers whose work illuminates one of these two themes: UNITY IN DIVERSITY or CLIMATE CHANGE. With the return of an ultra-nationalism unequaled since the 1930s, the conflict in Syria that resulted in millions of refugees, conflicts in Africa, Middle East, Far East and North and South America and the continuing threat to humans life on earth posed by global warming, we believe these themes are timely and important.
