Capricious
The Capricious Award will provide one photographer with the resources and editorial support to bring a body of work to fruition. The award is juried by photographers, critics and curators, with the intent to select a photographer whose work is both distinct in point of view and boldly relevant to the unfolding issues of our time.

The Capricious Award provides one photographer with the resources and editorial support to bring a body of work to fruition. Each year the award is juried by photographers, critics and curators, with the intent to select a photographer whose work is both distinct in point of view and boldly relevant to the unfolding issues of our time.

The recipient will be awarded with resources, valued at $25,000, geared towards the production of a limited edition book. This includes access to our in-house design and editing team and international distribution.

Capricious is an arts foundation based in New York focused primarily on art book publishing and an annual photo book award. Founded first as a fine art photography magazine in 2004 by Sophie Mörner, Capricious has provided an unparalleled international platform for emerging and underrepresented photographers over the span of nearly 20 years. Past recipients of the Capricious Photo Award include: John Edmonds, Sasha Phyars-Burgess, and Farah Al Qasimi.
