Magnum Photos Inge Morath Award 2006

Magnum Photos announces the fourth $5000 Inge Morath Prize to be awarded to a woman photographer under thirty years of age. The prize is designed to assist in the completion of a long term documentary project.

Inge Morath was an Austrian-born photographer who was associated with Magnum for almost fifty years. She died in January, 2002. As Inge devoted much of her enthusiasm to encouraging women photographers, this award is given as a tribute by her colleagues.
