The Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award of £2,000, facilitated by FotoDocument and generously supported by Nikon UK, is granted annually to a professional woman photographer towards the completion of a compelling and cohesive documentary photo essay, which addresses an important social, environmental, economic or cultural issue, whether local or global that has a focus on positive solutions.
One overall winner will receive The Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award of £2,000 towards an ongoing project and one runner up will receive £500.
The work should, in part, showcase positive solutions to any issues it raises in order to contribute to constructive photojournalism, in line with the wishes of Marilyn Stafford and the aims of FotoDocument. The Award is reserved solely for documentary photographers working on projects which are intended to make the world a better place and which may be unreported or under-reported.
Submissions for the 2021 award will be open from 8 March International Women’s Day and close on Monday 24 May 2021.
