The Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award

Providing creative opportunities for women photographers

The Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award, facilitated by FotoDocument and supported generously by Nikon UK, is granted annually to a professional female photographer towards the completion of a compelling and cohesive documentary photo essay, which addresses an important social, environmental, economic or cultural issue, whether local or global.

The overall winner is awarded a grant of £2,500. All shortlisted applicants are featured on the FotoDocument website and will be publicised by both FotoDocument and Nikon UK.

The Award is reserved solely to women documentary photographers, working on projects that are intended to make the world a better place and which may be unreported / under-reported.
