art:i:curate artist Nikolas Ventourakis gets nominated for The Graduate Photographers Award 2015.
Magnum Photos and Photo London, a major new international photography event, are celebrating their collaboration with the inaugural edition of their photographic award, supported by RBB Economics, aimed at recent UK graduates.
The Graduate Photographers Award will provide a new opportunity for photographers, acknowledging the best emerging practitioners and providing them with exposure to both a public and highly professional audience. A nomination team comprised of ten highly skilled industry experts have each put forward ten outstanding photographers who have graduated from a UK degree course relating to photography or lens-based media in the last three years. Finalists will be announced in an exclusive event during Photo London later in May.
Photo London will take place at Somerset House between 21-24 May, 2015.
