KBr Photo Award

KBr Photo Award

The KBr Photo Award is a biennial international prize promoted by Fundación MAPFRE to contribute to the recognition and visibility of authors with a professional career already underway and whose work shows artistic values of special interest within the tradition of documentary photography.

The prize, which is awarded to unpublished projects, aims to distinguish and promote the career of the winner by means of a cash prize (€25,000), the exhibition of the project in the Foundation’s two galleries (KBr and Madrid) and the publication of the respective catalogue.

Created in 2020, the KBr Photo Award’s first two editions have gone to Anastasia Samoylova (2021) and Felipe Romero Beltrán (2023).

A new edition of the KBr Photo Award is held every two years.
