Auto de Fe Offers $5,000 in Prizes for Inquisitive Photography

Posted by on Wednesday August 1, 2012 | Uncategorized

Auto de Fe, the iPad app-based journal of long-form photojournalism, has announced the Inquisitive Photography Prize fund, offering four prizes, totaling $5000, to photographers submitting proposals to the magazine. The winners will be announced in the summer of 2013, according to Jack Laurenson, Executive Editor of Auto de Fe.

To be considered for one of the prizes, photographers must submit a proposal for a story or project. If accepted for publication in Auto de Fe, the project is automatically shortlisted for the Inquisitive Photography Prize (IPP). Two finalists will be chosen from each issue until there are 16 finalists. The editors will then choose the winners of a Gold Prize of $3,000; a Silver prize of $1250; and a Bronze Prize of $750.

The submissions page of the magazine’s web site says that the magazine seeks images with text, and supports multiplatform reporting on “neglected, misrepresented or under-reported issue[s].” The two photographers selected as finalists for the IPP from Auto de Fe‘s first issue are Lisa Wiltse, for her work on the Charcoal Kids of
Ulingan and Carole Alfarah, who photographed inside Syria.

Auto de Fe announced the prize yesterday, the day before it released its second issue, available for $.99 on the Apple iTunes store.

Laurenson explains that the IPP fund is one of the ways Auto de Fe pays contributors. “The first is we give them a 50 percent slice of any revenue we generate from sales.” Auto de Fe also plans to begin hosting online print sales “in the very near future,” he says, and will split sales with photographers.

More information on the IPP can be found on the Auto de Fe web site.
