A creative challenge


The Syngenta Photography Award is an invitation to create images that make people stop and think. The Open Competition will invite all photographers – whether amateur, professional, or student – to visually explore global challenges through a compelling series of images.


The Open Competition will be open to any photographer ages 18 or over – whether amateur, professional, or student.

Celebrating excellence


All entries will be judged by a distinguished international panel chaired by the author and curator William A. Ewing. The jury members award three prizes in the Open Competition: 


 1st  prize: US$5,000
 2nd prize: US$3,000
 3rd prize: US$2,000


The winners will have their work featured in the International New York Times as well as showcased at an exhibition at Somerset House, London early 2015. 


Theme and jury of The Syngenta Photography Award 2014 will be announced on this website shortly.
