Once again this year FUJIFILM is confirmed as sponsor of the World Report Award, the international documentary photography competition promoted by the Festival of Ethical Photography.
The Festival of Ethical Photography presents the new edition of the World Report Award, photographic competition that is aimed at all Italian and foreign photographers, professional and not, with the aim not only of finding new talent, but also to collect a story that can give a global vision of events, inside and outside national borders.
FUJIFILM: sponsor del World Report Award 2023
The big news of this edition is that there will be no limit to the number of special mentions that the jury can award, in addition to the prizes for each category. The jury is made up of internationally recognized professionals working in the imaging sector.
The second novelty is the Single Shot, a category that has moved to an open theme and therefore this change will allow a large number of photographers to participate with very heterogeneous themes. Furthermore, it will be possible for the jury to select a single shot from among the reports submitted in other categories, in order to further expand the possibility for photographers to see their work recognised.
