Grantee profile


FotoEvidence highlights the power of documentary photography to shed light on human rights abuses, oppression, and other forms of injustice. It accomplishes this through two annual awards. The FotoEvidence Book Award recognises the tenacity and courage of an individual photojournalist, working to expose affronts to social and environmental justice. The second, the W Award, honours women photographers who share their personal stories through their art. The winning photographers receive mentorships and are supported to publish their collections. In 2021, the organisation launched an annual workshop for photographers who work for humanitarian missions and NGOs, and whose photographs are intended to evidence injustice. FotoEvidence has worked with Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, World Vision and several other international NGOs working on children’s health, women’s rights, indigenous rights and human rights in general.
