In 2022, we launched The Social Documentary Photography Awards, a bi-annual competition that awards cash prizes to professional and amateur documentary photographers in both single and series entries.

Since launching the TPF Grant in 2021 in partnership with LIMI London, we launched the competition due to the high volume of amazing photographers who submitted their work.

Through these awards, we want to highlight amazing photographers, show hidden realities and support emerging and established social documentary photographers, whilst raining money for the work we do at The Photography Foundation.

We’re excited to be hosting our first exhibition to showcase the winners work at the Photobook Café – join us for an evening of networking and inspiration.

This award is supported by MPB and Photobook Cafe💙

About the organisers

The Photography Foundation was created to provide pathways to professional photography for less advantaged young adults in London by offering education, practical experience, and routes to a career in the creative industries.

This event is in proud partnership withPhotobook Cafe- a community cafe & photo book library based in Shoreditch. Established in 2019, PBC was built on a passion for photographic photo books and traditional darkroom practice, as well as a love of food and drink.
