New-Post Photography?

AWARD – I Edition

The Contemporary Photography Award by MIA Photo Fair

Introduction  

For the upcoming 10th edition, MIA Photo Fair is pleased to announce a new initiative aimed at promoting creativity and innovation in the world of contemporary photography. Through this award, open to all authors without any restrictions in theme, age, gender or nationality, the winners will be offered an opportunity to be exhibited at no charge during the 10th edition of MIA Photo Fair,  Milano at an exhibition dedicated to the Award “New-Post Photography?”

The Award “New-Post Photography?” intends to promote new photographic languages capable of reflecting the contemporary world in an innovative way. After the years of experimentation and reflections on the photographic language, that marked the cultural scene in the years Seventies of the last century, a number of new questions arise today: How is the photography changing? Does it indicate the increasing use of the new technology or is it also able to re-read and re-actualize the past by investigating its own history? Is it mainly focused on staged scenes or does it look for the direct reflection of the world? And how does it relate to the dynamic social universe?

The objective of the Award is to make the exhibition “New-Post Photography?” a significant showcase and a sensor capable of capturing and highlighting the changes taking place in the world of contemporary photography. It is aiming at becoming a cultural platform that introduces and provides visibility to the winners through an important exhibition event.

Curatorial coordination of the Award by Gigliola Foschi, MIA Photo Fair.
