For more than 10 years, the ENAIRE Foundation has been strongly committed to photography as a first-rate artistic manifestation, occupying a prominent place within the ENAIRE Collection of Contemporary Art today.
The ENAIRE Photography Prize recognizes original works that have not been awarded in any other competition, of an artistic nature and free theme. Each author may submit up to three photographs. The three winning works will become part of the ENAIRE Collection of Contemporary Art and will participate, together with the finalists, in the exhibition at the Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid as part of the Official Section of PHotoESPAÑA 2021, within the framework of the official opening of the XXIV edition of the Festival.
The established prizes are € 12.000 for the first prize; € 8.000 for the second and € 5.000 for the third.
In this edition, the Photography Award is structured in two phases that combine digital and material modalities. In a first phase, The photographs that are eligible for the award must be submitted digitally from January 26 to March 7, 2021 through a registration form.
Of all the works presented, the jury will pre-select 25 photographs for the second phase. These photographs must be physically submitted from May 10 to 14, 2021 at the two addresses detailed in the award rules.
