A theme that characterizes the history of humanity, as a condition acquired from birth or an ideal to be pursued and affirmed through social movements. Freedom is today, as never before, at the center of a reflection, which takes place around broader issues. Photojournalism is first and foremost a manifestation of freedom of expression and movement. Freedoms that are often still denied, if we think of phenomena, such as: migratory flows, the possibility of accessing and guaranteeing health care, episodes of racism, the impact of intensive human actions perpetrated on the territory, to the detriment of environmental resources and of the populations involved in certain places on earth. These are just some of the points that need to be addressed. Through photographic narration, freedom becomes an area to be investigated further in order to document its presence, its absence and the path to search for it, as a condition that should concern every living being.
The selected projects will be submitted to an international jury, composed of professionals
and chaired by Patricia Franceschetti Cagnoni.
The experts will meet in order to determine the award winner and assign special mentions.
