After the success of the PMH 2013 Grant, during which more than 1100 photographers presented their works, Photographic Museum of Humanity announces the new 2014 Grant. The jury for the second edition of the contest will be outstanding: Alec Soth (Magnum Photos), Iatã Cannabrava (Brazilian Curator, creator of the Latin American Photography Forum of São Paulo), Olivier Laurent (Associated Editor for British Journal of Photography) and Diana Markosian (young award winning photographer). They will be in charge to review the portfolios and award the successor of Cihad Caner, last year winner.
PMH 2014 Grant is an important occasion to see your work recognized by an outstanding jury in front of an international public. It is a great moment to gain visibility and create yourself new opportunities.
"Since winning the PMH 2013 Grant First Prize, I won a scholarship that will help me to conduct more work, and I think this is largely due to the prize. It enabled my work to gain more visibility and it gives me an extra incentive to start new projects"
Cihad Caner, 1st prize winner of the PMH 2013 Grant
