Metro partners IAFOR Documentary Photography Award 2016

26 July 2016
Metro is thrilled to partner The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) Documentary Photography Award this year awarding Grand Prize Winner, Alexey Furman a 12-month Metro Imaging Mentorship prize.

The IAFOR Documentary Photography Award is an international photography award which seeks to promote and assist in the professional development of emerging documentary photographers and photojournalists.  Supported by The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) it builds on the strength of the IAFOR Documentary Film Award, which is now in its fifth year.

This year’s award was judged by a panel of leading professionals in the field of documentary photography and photojournalism, including IAFOR Founding Judge, Dr. Paul Lowe (Panos Pictures/University of the Arts London), Ed Kashi (VII Photo Agency/TALKING EYES MEDIA) and Britsh Photogrpaher Simon Roberts.

Justice was the theme of this year’s award, inspiring a prolific and diverse range of interpretations with  over 150 entries received from more than 50 countries. Despite the high level of photography the judges agreed conclusively that Ukrainian freelance photojournalist, Alexey Furman, currently pursuing his Master’s degree at Missouri School of Journalism on a Fulbright scholarship, was a deserving Grand Prize Winner for his project Life After Injury.

Furman’s project focuses on the difficult physical and psychosocial rehabilitation of young Ukrainian soldiers wounded during the on-going conflict with Russia-backed rebels and the Russian army in the Donbass region in eastern Ukraine – a conflict which since May 2014 has taken over 9,000 lives, and injured more than 5,000 Ukrainian soldiers.
