Pagina italiana Page française

The Festival of Ethical Photography of Lodi is pleased to present the seventh edition of the World.Report Award | Documenting Humanity.

The Festival of Ethical Photography wants to bring the general public close to ethically significant contents using photography as communication and knowledge means, and to offer different nuances of the fine relationship between ethics, communication and photography. The Festival has come to the attention of the public thanks to the quality of the exhibitions and the participation of worldwide known photographers present in previous editions.

The awards will give attention to works focusing on people and their social and cultural stories; public or private, minor or crucial, big human tragedies or petty daily stories, changes and immutability.

For the first time, we have introduced a new category: the Single Shot category. The award will focus on the image’s ability to convey a powerful message, embodying the theme in a single shot.

  • Single Shot Award: Fertile Solidarity. The theme for this new Single Shot section aims to be a hymn to solidarity that generates future progress. The spirit of togetherness is realized through actions which bring and support the progress of our entire society.
    We perceive solidarity as an act of growth that stimulates, builds and inspires change. We are looking for images that represent this perspective in a creative way: this could be from the many activities carried out by humanitarian associations, to the personal relationships among people, from treatment and pain relief to the sense of belonging to the great World community. Share your vision of Fertile Solidarity with us. The work will be represented in a single shot.
    The following awards will be assigned: First prize 800 Euros gross cash; Second prize 500 Euros gross cash; Third prize 400 Euros gross cash.
    The top 30 finalists of this section will have their photos exhibited during the 2017 edition of the Festival. They will be included in a catalogue and in a calendar specifically printed for this section. This section has been realized thanks to the educational unrestricted grant of IBSA Farmaceutici Italia.
