The Future of Energy Professional Photo Contest
The photo contest will be an interactive element of the Future of Energy conference, with the selected photos used as venue decor and for future FMO promotional activities.
FMO will commission 4 photographers based on their submitted project proposals, one from each of the sub-regions where FMO is active in: Latin America and the Caribbean, East and Southern Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East, and North Africa, Eastern Europe, and Asia.
Each selected photographer will then take the photographs as described in their project proposals.
Each selected photographer will take the photographs as described in their project proposals and receive an initial amount of $5,000 per assignment. The funds will be paid $1,500 upfront and $3,500 upon completion and evaluation of their projects.
the Professional Photo contest is only open for professional photographers that can submit a recent document date that verifies their professional status, based in FMO’s country of operations and other emerging markets (see full country list on website).
