Conference Theme: “East Meets West: Innovation and Discovery”

 

From natural phenomena and the results of climate change, through pollution and societal traumas, migrations and war, the enormous challenges that face humankind and our environment are frequently daunting, and difficult to comprehend. However, with every new challenge or disruption comes the opportunity for innovation and discovery. Whether inventing new technologies, implementing innovative systems, enacting better policies, legislation, or governance, or ensuring greater cooperation and information sharing, responses are many and varied.

From incremental shift to radical change, from local to regional, or from the national to the global, this international conference will focus on the challenges that demand a collective response. It will highlight the need to harness our abilities as scientists, policymakers, practitioners, engineers and educators, to find multidisciplinary solutions in pursuit of the common goal of a sustainable world.

In conjunction with our global partners, we look forward to extending a warm welcome to you in 2017.

The IAFOR Documentary Photography Award – 2016 Winners Screening

 

The IAFOR Documentary Photography Award 2016

The IAFOR Documentary Photography Award is an international photography award which seeks to promote and assist in the professional development of emerging documentary photographers and photojournalists.

The Award is supported by The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) – Asia’s Think Tank – and builds off of the strength of the IAFOR Documentary Film Award, now in its fifth year. Documentary has a rich history of exposing truths, telling stories, raising awareness and creating discussion — all practices valued at IAFOR.

Our 2016 award was judged by a panel of leading professionals in the field of documentary photography and photojournalism, including Paul Lowe, Simon Roberts and Ed Kashi.

Winners were announced at The European Conference on Arts & Humanities in Brighton, England. The Award followed the theme of the conference, with 2016’s theme being “Justice”

In supporting upcoming talent, the IAFOR Documentary Photography Award is free to enter.

All delegates receive free entry to the award screening.
