Photo agency Magnum and LensCulture have announced the winners of their second photography awards that seeks to “recognise, reward and support photographic talent”. 12 winners have been selected in total divided between single image and series awards, which are then selected within six categories: street, portrait, photojournalism, open, fine art and documentary.
Each winner will receive a cash prize and will have work shown in a digital exhibition at the Photographer’s Gallery in London and at photography festivals worldwide.
“The 12 winners of the prestigious award hail from all over the world and deal with a diversity of subjects,” say the organisers. “Nick Hannes, the Documentary series winner, pursued a project featuring the culture of the elite in Dubai, while Lissa Rivera’s striking portraits of her non-binary partner explore contemporary notions of gender and its narratives in today’s society.”
