REVELA, 3rd International Photography Award for the Social Rights Holders, is an unusual type of photography competition, as in this case the prize goes to the photographied social group, not the photographer.
From the photography projects, a total of 75,000 euros (thanks to anonymous donations) will be divided between three social intervention projects. These social intervention projects will always be managed by an institution (association, NGO, foundation, cooperative, group…). The photographers can be professionals or amateurs and it can be on any theme. The photography projects and social intervention projects will be evaluated and weighted independently. For this purpose, a points system will be used that will provide an unbiased value to the projects. Both the portfolio and the project will require a minimum of points to be able to get the prize. The jury will be formed by international renowned professionals from the world of photography, journalism and social intervention.
This competition is coordinated from Espai Fotogràfic Can Basté. The aim is to promote direct social aid, publicise the photographers and their portfolio and create dynamics of supportive social participation.
The competition is held annually.
