“It is with great excitement that we launch into the 13h year of The Lucie Awards. I am thrilled with the caliber of photographers we continue to identify each and every year and this year is no exception,” remarked Hossein Farmani, Founder and Chairman of the Lucie Awards. “From the extraordinary work of relative newcomer Stephanie Sinclair, to the legends with decades of work,
the Lucies recognize those photographers making a serious impact in the world through their lenses and the issues upon which they choose to shed light.”
“The ability to honor these exceptional photographers whose work has made a lasting difference in our global photo community, is an honor unto itself. We are able to not only “thank them” for their vision, at an incredible Awards ceremony, but archive their work for future reference. The Lucie Awards honors their photography gift to us, which will now continue to keep on giving, as
their own powerful images inspire and give back to us when we look at them,” remarked Susan Baraz, Co-Chair of the Lucie Awards, Head of Judging for IPA.
In addition to recognizing these eight masters in their fields, The Lucie Awards also honors the year’s best photographic achievements by presenting six Support Category awards. These categories range from Fashion Layout of the Year to Curator/Exhibition of the Year. These Support Awards acknowledge the individuals and institutions that play an important part in the crafting and promoting of images.
At this year’s gala, The International Photography Awards (IPA), the outstanding
global competition, and sister-effort of the Lucie Awards, will announce the top 4 winners, including the Photographer of the Year.
