Silvana S. Foundation Commission Award 2020 – Finalists

The Silvana S. Foundation Commission Award is a brand-new commission award that aims to empower photographers based in the Asia Pacific focusing on environmental, wildlife preservation, and humanitarian concerns.

The theme for the inaugural edition is Rediscovering Lost Connections. Despite our modern world becoming more interconnected than ever before, many have lost touch with the environment. The theme encompasses the need for us to reconnect to our immediate surroundings — to the environment, people and all living creatures that co-exist on earth. The commission award hopes to bring about an awareness of the issues that affect us and our future generations.

The winner for this edition will be announced in September.
