Awarded Commitment

Photography Awards with a Mission

14 April - 20 May

The Noorderlicht Photogallery pays homage to documentary photography with an exhibition of recent winners and nominees in three photography competitions that have social consciousness-raising as their mission: the Prix Pictet, the FotoEvidence Book Award and the AnthropoGraphia Award for Human Rights.

From different points of departure, each of the three awards sees documentary photography as a means of raising the awareness of society about issues of human capacities and powerlessness. Where the Prix Pictet seeks to encourage a more environmentally aware and sustainable society with its prizes and commissions, FotoEvidence unflinchingly seeks confrontation with its raw and sometimes frankly shocking images of violations of human rights. With photography that transcends the bounds of genres, the AnthropoGraphia Award for Human Rights focuses on developing better understanding among different cultures. The result is a diverse and gripping exhibition about human respect, crying injustice and a sustainable world.
