Magnum Photos announces the second $5,000 Inge Morath Prize, which will be awarded to a female photographer under 30 years of age. The prize is designed to assist in the completion of a long term documentary project.
Morath, an Austrian-born photographer who was associated with Magnum for almost 50 years, died in January, 2002. As Morath devoted much of her enthusiasm to encouraging women photographers, this award is given as a tribute by her colleagues.
Applicants should assemble a portfolio of slides or a CD–between 40 and 80 images–and a one-page project description. The photographer’s name, telephone number and shipping and mailing address should be included.
