About Capricious Photo Award
The Capricious Award will provide one photographer with the resources and editorial support to bring a body of work to fruition. The award will be juried by photographers, critics and curators, with the intent to select a photographer whose work is both distinct in point of view and boldly relevant to the unfolding issues of our time. The inaugural award continues the legacy of Capricious Magazine, culminating in the form of a photo book to be published Fall 2017.
What published artists receive
One winner will be awarded with resources, valued at $10,000, geared towards the production of a limited edition book. This includes access to our in-house design and editing team and international distribution.
Founded as a fine art photography magazine in 2004 by Sophie Mörner, Capricious Magazine has provided an unparalleled international platform for emerging and underrepresented photographers over the span of twelve years.
With this award we close Capricious as a magazine, and introduce a new platform that will act as conduit to the shapeshifting function and fine art of photography while broadening the public’s perspectives on photography at-large.
The jury is lead by Katherine Hubbard (Interdisciplinary Artist/Educator), Charlotte Cotton (Curator/Writer), Deborah Willis (Curator, Historian, Dept. Chair of Photography and Imaging at Tisch), Shannon Michael Cane (Printed Matter Fairs and Editions Curator), JOFF (Assistant Director of Parsons MFA Fashion Design & Society), Emma Reeves (Photo Editor/Director), Tim Barber (Photographer/ Curator), Paul Mpagi Sepuya (Photographer), Melanie Bonajo (Multi-Disciplinary Artist).
