Cash Prize
Fundación MAPFRE is launching the 1st edition of the KBr Photo Award, a biennial international prize that reaffirms the Fundación’s support for artistic creation. This support takes the form of promoting the winning photographer on a national and international level and furthering their career with a cash prize, an exhibition and an associated catalogue.

The KBr Photo Award is open to Spanish and non-Spanish artists aged over 18 who will produce a new photographic project or complete an already undertaken one, both previously unpublished and which have not been entered for any other similar competition.

There is no fixed subject, but preference will be given to entries that reflect the tradition of documentary photography. Participants should send a description of the project and a selection of between 10 and 15 images that illustrate the proposal.

Prize
The prize is 25,000 Euros. In addition, Fundación MAPFRE will organise and present an exhibition in the Espai 2 at the KBr Fundación MAPFRE Barcelona Photo Center in February 2023. The exhibition will present the results of the prize-winning project and the Fundación will publish an accompanying catalogue.
