2019 Visionary Award from the Tim Hetherington Trust

6:30 Thursday 9 May 2019, Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, London W2

We'd love to see you again this year!  We’re back at the Frontline Club to present the Visionary Award 2019 and with it the opportunity to see work by the most dynamic visual storytellers working today.

The visionary Award draws inspiration from Tim Hetherington’s life and work by identifying and nurturing visual journalists and artists working at the cutting edge of the media to create more effective communication about issues that matter in the world today.  The evening of May 9th will introduce the five shortlisted creators talking about their work, plus an update from last year’s awardee LAIA ABRIL who will report on progress made on her History of Misogyny Chapter 2.  

Join us and be the first to know!  Mark the date and standby for more details to follow in April.
Thank you for your interest in our work and thank you for holding the date!

About the Visionary Award

The Visionary Award is designed to foster innovative approaches to storytelling and supports visionary individuals who we hope will offer inspiration to others by example.   The award seeks out visual artists and journalists whose thinking and process reaches beyond the limitations of conventional media practice to create engaging and dynamic communications using any appropriate technology to create and distribute stories that inspire audiences and bring a fresh understanding of the chosen subject.

The successful candidates demonstrate personal vision, artistic ability, ethical integrity and have the necessary craft skills to execute their project effectively.  The award particularly favors projects that can be augmented by the application of new skills or technologies and in addition to the £20,000 cash grant we will find mentors to help expand the scope of the project beyond initial expectations.  Openness to new ideas and willingness to work in partnership are key characteristics for eligibility.
