A new competition for the Luis Valtue˝a Humanitarian Photography Prize

Once again this year, the Médicos del Mundo Association is awarding the Luis Valtueña Humanitarian Photography Prize, which pays tribute to the aid workers Luis Valtueña, Flors Sirera, Manuel Madrazo and Mercedes Navarro, who were murdered in Bosnia and Rwanda while undertaking humanitarian work in 1995 and 1997.

The prize is being awarded for the fifteenth time this year, and the deadline for entries is 15 October. The first prize is worth 8,000 euros, which will be invested in a working grant for the winner to undertake a photographic project based on subjects related to the work of Médicos del Mundo.

The winner last year was a series on child prisoners in prisons in Sierra Leone, by the Basque photographer Fernando Moleres.
