The Festival of Ethical Photography is pleased to present the ninth edition of the World.Report Award.
The Festival of Ethical Photography of Lodi was created and is managed purely on a voluntary basis. Its purpose is to bring the general public close to ethically significant content using photography as a means of communication and knowledge, analysing different nuances of the delicate/fine relationship between ethics, communication and photography.
The Festival has come to the attention of the public thanks to the quality of its exhibitions and the participation of worldwide known photographers present in previous editions. The Festival wants to be at the service of photojournalism, of the kind of photography that tells stories, that makes you think and that is increasingly more difficult to be seen in the media.
The World.Report Award aims at a new form of social commitment through photography. The award is open to both professional and amateur photographers from all over the world. The award will give attention to works focusing on people and their social or cultural stories; public or private, minor or crucial, major human tragedies or smaller daily life stories, changes and immutability.
The main focus of the evaluation of the reportages will be the story that the project tells through compelling images submitted.
The awards are intended to sustain economically photographers who are actively engaged in this sector of photography and that are often not paid properly.
We are pleased to introduce a new category: WORLD ITALY AWARD
For the 10th edition of the Festival we decided to introduce a new themed category entirely dedicated to our nation.
