Our free photography contest recommendation of the day!
For the eighth year running, OjodePez and PhotoEspaña are teaming up to offer a prize that will become an object of desire for all documentary photographers. The magazine wants to go further in its defence of the best documentary photography, and to do this it is joining forces with one of the main international photography events.

The participants must send in a minimum of 10 or a maximum of 15 images. A prestigious international panel of judges will select the best portfolio, which will receive a 2,000 euro prize. In addition, the winning work could be the object of an exhibition and will be published in a special issue that OjodePez devotes each fall to the award.
At the same time, the panel will select of series of finalists – no more than nine –, who will also see their work published in the special issue of the magazine.
