The Visionary Award from the Tim Hetherington Trust

Innovation in visual storytelling

The Visionary Award is designed to foster innovative approaches to storytelling and as such it will support visionary individuals and offer inspiration to others by example. To achieve this we are looking for visual artists and journalists whose thinking and process reach beyond the limitations of conventional media practice to create engaging and dynamic communication pieces. We deliberately avoid defining the content or format of the nominations in the hope that we can attract truly innovative work, but innovation for its own sake is not sufficient: we are looking for work that effectively engages the audience using any appropriate technology to create and distribute a story that will inspire the audience and bring a fresh understanding of the chosen subject.
