The New East Photo Prize 2018 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 — welcoming the work of professional and non-professional photographers alike. It is a Calvert 22 Foundation initiative supported by The Calvert Journal, our award-winning online magazine dedicated to exploring the culture and creativity of the region.
This year, the biennial prize received a wide range of entries from 26 New East countries. With a multitude of works reflecting a spectrum of approaches and topics, the New East Photo Prize 2018 is a unique glimpse into the self-identity of an underrepresented region and the lives of its people.
