Through compelling imagery, The Syngenta Photography Award aims to draw attention and stimulate dialogue around key global challenges. The award offers photographers an international platform for their work and also provides the opportunity to explore issues of global significance. Entries are judged by a distinguished international panel chaired by the author and curator William A. Ewing.
The Syngenta Photography Award is designed for both professional and amateur photographers. There are two categories – the Professional Commission and the Open Competition – with US$65,000 in prizes, including a professional commission with a grant of up to US$25,000.
The International New York Times is the global media sponsor of The Syngenta Photography Award.
