EyeEm by Talenthouse sponsors BarTur Photo Award 2022

We are so proud to announce our sponsorship of the BarTur Photo Award for 2022. This is such a prestigious and truly unique opportunity for any photographer, and we just couldn’t be more excited to share this sponsorship.

A key focus of the BarTur Photo Award has always been the immense power photography has in influencing the way that we understand and engage with the world around us. It aims to find, support and recognize the best contemporary photographic talent and encourages diversity of photographic approaches that reflect vibrant and continuing photographic traditions. We could not agree more, and the understanding of photography’s power in the world is a vision we hold tightly here at EyeEm by Talenthouse, and we are excited to share this opportunity with you, our community.

In addition to their regular yearly themes, new for this year is the Ann Lesley BarTur Photo Award in collaboration with LEICA Fotografie International. Anyone who identifies as a woman, non-binary, or gender-queer is encouraged to submit to the award, and photographers of colour and from the Global South are particularly encouraged.

The theme of this year will be (Visions of the) Future. They are inviting you to look to the future, to avoid dwelling on the past and to embrace hope. Review the rest of their themes here.

The competition is now open and free for anybody who wishes to enter. The competition closes on 31st May 2022. There are cash prizes and grants of $20,000 in total as well as exhibitions of the winning work in Copenhagen, Łódź, and Berlin.

This is a fantastic opportunity, and you have until the end of May to submit your best work.

Don’t miss out - visit their website today to find out how to submit.
