Athens Photo World 2022 & Yannis Behrakis Award Ceremony - Εικόνα

Athens Photo World is also organizing, for the fourth consecutive year, the cash prize competitions it established in 2019. 

The Yannis Behrakis International Photojournalism Award (#YBIPA) and the Athens Photo World Award (#APWA) will be presented at a special event to be held at the SNFCC Lighthouse. The Athens Photo World (APW) organizing team (Thanassis Stavrakis, Lefteris Pitarakis, Yannis Kolesidis, Christina Kalligianni), as well as prominent photojournalists, will talk with journalist Niki Lymperaki about the key photojournalism topics of the past year. After that, Elisavet Saridou-Behraki will announce the winner of the Yannis Behrakis Award, while the Athens Photo World Award 2022 will be presented by Dimitris Tosidis, winner of the APWA 2021.  

Both awards honor Yannis Behrakis’s legacy and give substance to the purpose of the event, the dissemination of the work of photojournalists, and their actual support so they can seamlessly keep at it.
