London School of Photography Awards 2013 - Free Entry

Inspired by photography legend Sebastiao Salgado’s GENESIS Project, the LSP Awards 2013 will be accepting submissions until 8th September 2013 into four categories with Winner and Runner-Up prizes and an Overall Winner prize for the submission of outstanding images into all four categories.

Salgado says of this body of work, “I have named this project GENESIS because my aim is to return to the beginnings of our planet: to the air, water and the fire that gave birth to life, to the animal species that have resisted domestication, to the remote tribes whose ‘primitive’ way of life is still untouched, to the existing examples of the earliest forms of human settlement and organisation. A potential path towards humanity’s rediscovery of itself. So many times I’ve photographed stories that show the degradation of the planet, I thought the only way to give us an incentive, to bring hope, is to show the pictures of the pristine planet – to see the innocence. And then we can understand what we must preserve.”
Sebastião Salgado via Jori Finkel for the NY Times.
