The Andy Rocchelli Grant is an international award promoted by CESURA in the name of its cofounder Andy Rocchelli, photojournalist killed in Ukraine in 2014. Andy was an irreplaceable firestarter, and to make sure that his values as a photographer and as a man can continue to burn, Cesura have decided to establish a grant in his name.

The aim is to identify the best unpublished photographic book dummy and award the winner with the production and publication of the book by Cesura Publish, in full freedom of expression, as Andy would have wanted.

The jury will meet in September 2021 to select a short list of finalists. In December 2021, the winning book will be announced.

The first edition of the grant is a project promoted and supported by Direzione Generale Creatività Contemporanea del Ministero per i beni e le attività culturali e per il turismo.
