Nikon has announced it is the sponsor of 2019’s Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award. Now in its third year, the global competition celebrates female photographers in the fields of photojournalism and documentary photography.

The award grants £2000 to the winning photographer to be used on her next project.

As a Nikon user myself, its equipment has been a trusted companion throughout my career and has allowed me and countless other photographers to carry out our crucial work. Nikon’s support is integral to shining a light on some of the most pressing global issues and highlighting how women are helping to tackle these through the power of their photography.”
