Israel Photography Festival is happy to announce an open call for the Meitar Award 2017.
The Meitar Award is an international prize awarded for excellence in the field of photography. By submitting your work, you will have the opportunity to showcase it to a world-class jury, have the chance to win a grant of $14,000, as well as a one-year cooperation with a curator and a solo exhibition. The jury, compiled of internationally renowned professionals, will select a shortlist of 20 finalists whose works will be presented in a group exhibition at the Israel Photography Festival in Tel Aviv during the month of November 2017. All the submitted works will be judged anonymously according to their originality and quality.
The Meitar Award is an initiative of the Israel Photography Festival and the Zvi and Ofra Meitar Family Fund. It was first awarded in 2016 to Israeli artists who showcased their talent and outstanding skills in photography. This year the Meitar Award has gained recognition as an international award, with the aspiration to create a worldwide dialogue through the language of photography.
