Applicants must submit 10-20 images with a report explaining how a particular conflict, revolution or natural disaster had an impact on the civilian population.

Along with the Nikon-sponsored cash prize, the winner will have their work displayed at an exhibition in Paris and published in a Reporters Without Borders album. Polka Magazine will also feature the winner’s reportage.

Applicants can submit several photo series but they must have been completed in 2011.
