BarTur Photo Award

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The BarTur Photo Award was established in 2011, with the generous support of the BarTur family, in memory of late wife and mother, British artist Ann Lesley BarTur (1947-1984).

The 2019 BarTur Photo Award is eager to introduce its two themes: Unity in Diversity and Climate Change. Submit your photos inspired by these themes as a Professional ($20 fee per entry) or Student (free entry). There are 18 total prizes available: 

  • One Professional Winner: $10,000, winning photo(s) featured in four exhibitions, and BarTur Photo Award online gallery
  • One Student Winner: $3,000, winning photo(s) featured in four exhibitions, and BarTur Photo Award online gallery  
  • Four Judge’s Choice Winners (two per category): winning photo(s) featured in four exhibitions and BarTur Photo Award online gallery 
  • Twelve Highly Commended Winners (two per category): winning photo(s) featured in four exhibitions and BarTur Photo Award online gallery 

The four exhibitions will be held in Copenhagen, Paris, Berlin, and New York throughout 2020.

Submissions will be evaluated by a world-leading panel of judges drawn from all areas of the professional photography industry. In addition to prizing, Winners, Judges’ Choice and Highly Commended applicants will receive feedback from the judging panel.

​The BarTur Photo Award is a non-profit organization. All funds received go towards the production and promotion of the Award as well as the promotion of the winning artists and their works.
