Cash Prize
The Lucie Foundation is proud to announce the Guardian Project, an open call supporting Pathshala/South Asian Media institute. The Lucie Foundation will be donating 50% of the profits received to support the ongoing efforts of their educational programs in photography, film and multimedia journalism. Based in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Pathshala /South Asian Media institute targets promising young photographers of the region. Though an initial quota has been kept for women and people from marginalized communities, in the long run, Pathshala will only cater to the most promising talent regardless of class and gender. The idea is to take young professionals who, with the right guidance and opportunities, can break into the highest echelons of the international photographic industry and tell their stories to the world. The Pathshala/ South Asian Media Institute was founded by photographer and activist Shahidul Alam, who received The Lucie Humanitarian Award in 2018.
