In addition to the financial award ($10,000), each winner will receive a new Leica Q2 to use for the completion of their photographic series onward.

Candidates for the award are requested to submit a series of 10 images from an ongoing personal or long-term project, made on any digital or film camera of any make, model or brand, with at least 4 images created in either 2019 or 2020. Alongside the images, applicants are required to submit a 250 word proposal describing their personal project and its relevance in today's social climate, including detail of how the funds will be allocated.

All About Photo Presents ’The Lives of Others’ by Meg McKenzie Ryan
Meg chose to shoot in the poorer neighborhoods of Mexicali, Mexico, the capital city of the state of Baja California. With over a million residents, the possibilities were enormous. Residents hardships were visible. Meg lived a few miles north of the Mexicali border in the lower desert of California, USA. The summers there last roughly seven months, and daytime temperatures during several of those months are almost always over 115 degrees F. Nights get down to 90-plus degrees F. In addition, major earthquake faults run through the area, and roughly every ten years or so, a large earthquake hits causing some buildings to crack or even crumble.
