Freelance photographers reporting under risky conditions can apply for an award.
The Lucas Dolega Award will recognize a photographer who often works in dangerous or difficult circumstances demonstrating dedication to democracy and freedom of information.
Participants must submit a selection of 10 to 20 photos documenting a conflict, revolution, natural or sanitary disaster, or their consequences on civil populations. Coverage of any news relevant to the defense of freedoms and democracy will also qualify.
The winner will receive an endowment of EUR10,000 (US$11,839) and will have their work displayed at an exhibition in Paris and published in the Reporters Without Borders album.
The application deadline is Oct. 30.
