In the PAN post this week we received a couple of catalogues and the latest competition details for the international news photography contest Istanbul Photo Awards – something we have been watching grow for a while.
Organised by the Anadolu Agency, a global news agency based in Turkey the contest aims to contribute to the sphere of news photography and offers a perspective shaped by the region’s unique position at the centre of diverse cultures.
They say: ‘The awards reward endeavors of courageous and talented photojournalists from around the world on merit. Although it is only the fourth edition of the contest, Istanbul Photo Awards has become one of the most widely known news photography contests in the world. Along with the generous awards of the contest aiming to support the hard work and dedication of news photographers worldwide, the application is totally free. The contest receives applications from more than 100 countries each year. The Istanbul Photo Awards 2018 received almost 37,000 photographs from 125 countries sent to the contest.’
