The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development in conjunction with the Calvert 22 Foundation are delighted to host the New East Photo Prize Exhibition at EBRD headquarters on Thursday 17 January 2019. This is the final chance to see the exhibition after the winner was announced at the end of last year.
The exhibition showcases selected work by the finalists nominated for the second edition of the New East Photo Prize. The Prize champions contemporary perspectives on the people and stories of the New East - the 29 countries of eastern Europe, the Balkans, Russia and Central Asia - and welcomes the work of professional and non-professional photographers alike.
This year, the biennial prize received a wide range of entries from 26 New East countries. With a multitude of works reflecting a wide spectrum of approaches and topics, the New East Photo Prize is a unique glimpse into the lives and identity of an underrepresented region and the lives of its people.
The participating finalists of the New East Photo Prize are: Antal Bánhegyesy, Vika Eksta, Daria Garnik, Ilkin Huseynov, Join the Cool, Karol Pałka, Lucia Sekerková, Michał Sierakowski, Michal Solarski, Alnis Stakle, Lana Stojićević, Elena Subach and Viacheslav Poliakov, Fyodor Telkov, Peter Trembeczki, Adam Wilkoszarski and Bolgárka Éva Zellei.
Calvert 22 is a not-for-profit organisation committed to empowering young talent in the creative economy of the New East which comprises eastern Europe, the Balkans, Russia and Central Asia. Read more about the work of Calvert 22 and this exhibition in The Calvert Journal.
