World.Report Award 2017 – Documenting Humanity

The Festival of Ethical Photography is pleased to present the seventh edition of the World.Report Award.
The main focus of the evaluation of the reportages (Master, Spot Light, Short Story, European
Photographers sections), will be the story that the project tells through compelling images submitted.
For the first time, we have introduced a new category: the Single Shot category. The award will focus on
the image’s ability to convey a powerful message, embodying the theme in a single shot.

The World.Report Award 2017 is divided in four sections:
● Master Award: This section is open to all photographers, with no restriction of any kind.

Humanistic Photography, Pulitzer Prize, POYi Picture of the Year and World.Report Award, with
exception for the multimedia category. Reportages must consist of min 20 and max 40 images. The
prize will be of 3,000 Euros gross cash.
● Short Story Award: This section is open to all photographers, with no restriction of any kind.

● European Photographers Award | France 2017: This section wants to focus its attention on the
different nationalities of the European photographers. The 2017 edition opens to all French
photographers and is done in collaboration with Manifesto Festival of Toulouse. Reportages must
consist of min 20 and max 40 pictures. The prize will be of 1,500 Euros gross cash.
This section is strictly open only to photographers of French nationality.
The winning photographer will have the reportage exhibited during the Festival of Ethical
Photography in 2017 and during the ManifestO Festival in 2018.
● Single Shot Award: Fertile Solidarity
The theme for this new Single Shot section aims to be a hymn to solidarity that generates future
progress. The spirit of togetherness is realized through actions which bring and support the
progress of our entire society.
We perceive solidarity as an act of growth that stimulates, builds and inspires change.
We are looking for images that represent this perspective in a creative way: this could be from the
many activities carried out by humanitarian associations, to the personal relationships among
people, from treatment and pain relief to the sense of belonging to the great World community.
Share your vision of Fertile Solidarity with us.
The work will be represented in a single shot.
The following awards will be assigned:
● First prize 800 Euros gross cash
