The Meitar Award for Excellence in photography, a collaboration between the Zvi and Ofra Meitar Family Fund and PHOTO IS:RAEL, will be awarded for the fourth time this year for a body of work that demonstrates excellence in the field of photography.
An independent jury will select 20 finalists who will be showcased in a group exhibition at the International Photography Festival in November 2019 in Tel-Aviv. Following the festival in Tel-Aviv, the finalists’ exhibition will travel to another festival in the world.
All works will be judged anonymously based on their originality and quality.
The jury will choose the body of work that in their opinion has the potential to form a part of an upcoming solo exhibition.
The award winner will be announced in November during the festival and will receive a $14,000 grant, composed of a personal grant of $2,500 and production of a solo exhibition that will be part of the 2020 International Photography Festival.
