New East Photo Prize 2018 Private View and Awards Ceremony

Join us to celebrate the opening of our exhibition showcasing selected work by the finalists nominated for the second edition of the New East Photo Prize.

We’ll also be announcing the overall winner of the New East Photo Prize 2018 as well as two special prizes.

A Calvert 22 Foundation initiative supported by The Calvert Journal, the Prize champions contemporary perspectives on the people and countries of the New East – Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Russia and Central Asia – welcoming the work of professional and non-professional photographers alike.

The three prizes that will be awarded are:

New East Photo Prize 2018

Alongside the opportunity to have work exhibited at Calvert 22 Space in London and gain international exposure as well as feedback from industry experts, the winner of the New East Photo Prize will be offered a cash prize of £1,000 to help develop a body of work further.

Fabrika Travel Photography Prize

This special prize is dedicated to the travel photography project that best documents the landscape, culture, people or history of a region or place. The winner will receive a five-day trip to Georgia, staying in Fabrika Tbilisi and Rooms Hotel Kazbegi, with tours of the capital and the mountains. This prize is supported by New East Photo Prize partner Fabrika, the hostel and urban hotspot in Tbilisi.
