Committed to the mission of disseminating and promoting the social value of documentary photography and photojournalism, in 2019 the Photographic Social Vision Foundation created the Joana Biarnés Scholarship for Young Photojournalists in honor of the first woman photojournalist in Spain. This fulfills the photographer’s desire to support the new generations of photojournalists, while allowing the foundation to pay tribute to her human and professional values.
This annual grant aims to support the professional development of young photojournalists, both over and under 35 years of age, who identify with the concerns, talent, principles and values of the best visual journalism and promote, thanks to the support received, the visibility of issues and challenges of necessary dissemination and social reflection, focusing on the national geography.
An expert and prestigious jury will evaluate the proposals received and will award 8,000 euros to the author or team selected to carry out their research. In addition, the author(s) will benefit from the advice of a tutor with extensive teaching and professional experience to develop their photojournalistic research for nine months through personalized sessions, reviews of the work produced and strategic analysis of the approach of the report. The final result is guaranteed to be disseminated through the production of an exhibition.
