The Silvana S. Foundation Commission Award is a brand new award that will be part of Singapore International Photography Festival’s (SIPF) programme in 2020. The award aims to empower Asia Pacific photographers that focus on environmental, wildlife preservation and humanitarian concerns. The winning photographer will be awarded with SGD$20,000 and an exhibition as part of SIPF in October 2020. For the inaugural edition, the theme Rediscovering Lost Connections speak of the imminent need to reconnect our ways of living back to our immediate surroundings – the environment, people and living creatures that co-exist on planet Earth. The award will enable creation of new works by photographers based in the Asia Pacific region, raising the profile of photographers and ultimately highlighting global issues in the community.
The Open Call is due to begin on 1 January 2020, and submissions can be made online at https://contests.picter.com/silvana-s-foundation-commission-award until 30 April 2020.
