Find out more and submit your project here.

The New East Photo Prize celebrates contemporary photography from Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Russia and Central Asia.
The New East Photo Prize champions artistic excellence in photography. The prize recognises practitioners offering representations of the social, cultural and physical landscape of the New East and other perspectives on that region.
Although hugely diverse, the countries of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union are often represented in an outdated manner which negates the rich culture and variety of creative output from these nations.
The prize seeks to broaden perceptions of the New East through the medium of photography. Its inaugural edition in 2016 received a total of 1,030 entries from 25 New East countries. You can find out more here.
The New East Photo Prize is a project of Calvert 22 Foundation, supported by its online award-winning magazine, The Calvert Journal.
