Join us at London’s After Nyne Gallery for an insightful exhibition of the work of the 3 main 2018 FotoAward winners: Özge Sebzeci, Mary Turner and Simona Ghizzoni plus the 27 shortlisted.

The award is reserved solely for documentary photographers working on projects which are intended to make the world a better place and which may be unreported or under-reported. Women from any stage of their careers whether emerging, mid-career or established can take part. Submissions are reviewed by an international panel of industry experts including: Dorothy Bohm, Donna de Cesare, Celia Davies, Nina Emett, Anna Fox, Melanie Friend, Marilyn Stafford and Helen Trompeteler.

“We are delighted that the Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award 2018 has been supported by Olympus. They are a forward-thinking brand, which values the contribution of women photographers striving to make a difference in the world.” – Nina Emett, Founding Director, FotoDocument

Simona Ghizzoni

The 2018 shortlist includes 30 women, working across the world on a diverse range of topics including indigenous transgender in Colombia, recovery from opioids in the US, women farmers in Scotland, survivor activists in Bhopal, the legacy of poverty in former coal mining towns in the north of England and with photographers coming from the US, UK, Brazil, Iceland, Russia, Ecuador, Germany, Spain, Italy, Turkey, Scotland, India and Pakistan. The stories to be told in the projects range from the personal to the political to the global.

“Olympus are proud supporters of the Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award. In a male dominant market it can be tough for female photographers, this Award not only recognises their talents and hard work, but also supports them in their photographic journey. Sharing great images is paramount and we are pleased to celebrate the fantastic entries from last year in our new gallery space and we are excited to see what this year’s competition will bring.” Georgina Pavelin, Marketing Manager, Olympus UK
