The deadline of the F Award for Concerned Photography has been extended to June 7th, 2010.

The F Award aims to involve photographers from all over the world.

The F Award aims to award photography that documents and criticizes, that tells a story: dramas, struggles, abused rights, but also dignity; pain and consolation, desperation and hope; the loss of everything and the triumph of life’s new possibilities and lastly the things that people do to face all of this. In a word, life.

The F Award aims to promote photography as a means of transmitting information and creating awareness. Without photography what would we know of hunger in the world, of the likely outcome of every war, of the living conditions of “the other half” to quote the work of one of concerned photography’s pioneers?

The F Award is inspired by the following words, published in 1972 by Cornell Capa:
“They are concerned photographers. They take sides. They are people who wanted to show things that had to be corrected…wanted to show things that had to be appreciated”.
The Concerned Photographer, Editor Cornell Capa, Grossman 1972

What to do: photographers who would like to participate should propose a series of photographs by June 7th, 2010 that would be part of a wider project that the prize will help finance.

The 2010 jury is formed by international personalities and is chaired by Peter Galassi, Chief Curator, Department of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

The other jury members are:

Monica Allende, Director of Photography, The Sunday Times Magazine
Enrico Bossan, Director of Photography, Fabrica
Melissa Harris, Editor-in-chief, Aperture magazine
Roberto Koch, President, Forma
Paolo Pellegrin, Photographer Magnum Photos
Urs Stahel, Director of the Museum of Winterthur (Zurich)

The jury will award the most interesting project with a contribution of euro 20.000 and the possibility of publishing a book.

A special section, F25, for photographers under 25 will see the winner awarded with a one year scholarship in Fabrica’s photography area.
