In 2011, Amnon Bar-Tur and his son, Armon, established the BarTur Photo Award in honor of the talented British artist, and Amnon’s late wife, Ann Leslie Bar-Tur. Since its founding, the award has grown on an international scale and has propelled the careers of many past winners. Now, the award features up to $10,000 in prize money and exhibitions of the winners in Copenhagen, Paris, Berlin, and New York, plus a permanent online gallery of winners. Like many winners of the award, however, Amnon came from humble beginnings.
