We are pleased to announce the Solas Photography Prize 2015.
This is an international award for contemporary photography and includes prizes of $11,500.
This is a new collaboration between Source Photographic Review and the Gallery of Photography Ireland.
The Prize will be judged by a panel of five curators / editors from leading photography institutions in Chicago, Salzburg, Rotterdam, Dublin and Belfast.
The deadline for submissions is 19 July.
The winner will be announced at the beginning of December.
The prizes consist of an individual first prize of $10,000, a second prize of $1,000 and a third prize of $500. The work selected for prizes will be exhibited in The Solas Awards Exhibition at the Gallery of Photography in Dublin and published and distributed worldwide in Source magazine with a commissioned essay. Additionally, 22 artists will be selected for an online exhibition and everyone submitting work will receive a free one-year digital subscription to Source.
Furthermore, work by Irish photographers, or work that was substantially made in Ireland is eligible for the Solas Ireland Awards. Three winners’ work will be included in The Solas Awards Exhibition and will each receive a 3-month artist’s residency at Gallery of Photography Ireland. Their work will be exhibited in a curated three-person show at Fotohof, Salzburg in 2016 for which they will receive a production and travel bursary.
The objective of the award is to discover new work.
