Syngenta Photography Award. Deadline Jan. 15, 2013

Syngenta Photography Award for Pro and Amateur Photographers

The Syngenta Photography Award offers photographers an important platform for outstanding imagery. It also provides the opportunity to explore, through a professional commission, an issue of global significance – such as food security, land preservation, water scarcity or biodiversity.

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. 
   
The winning professional photographer will design and complete their own commission, with a grant of up to US$25,000.
   
Entries are judged by a distinguished international panel.
   
The International Herald Tribune and the New York Times are global media sponsors of the Syngenta Photography Award.
   
Winning photographs will form the backdrop to an exhibition and symposium in London on the issues addressed by the Syngenta Photography Award.
