IdeasTap has named the photographers who will go through to the next round of its annual competition, which it runs in partnership with Magnum Photos.

They are: Albert Elm; Jack Latham; Sophie Green; Karolina Jonderko; Magda Rakita; Sarah Amy Fishlock; Adél Koleszár; Álvaro Laiz; and Vasantha Yogananthan.

On the judging panel were: Lucy Davies, commissioning editor of photography at The Telegraph; Peter Marlow, Magnum photographer; Jonathan Bell, editorial and publishing representative at Magnum Photos; and Souvid Datta, 2013 IdeasTap Photographic Award winner.

The Award, now in its fifth year, aims to showcase and celebrate emerging photographers who are working within documentary photography.

Each of the nine shortlisted photographers will receive £1500 to shoot a new project, and will also be mentored by a member of Magnum Photos. The three overall winners will be announced in May 2015 and awarded prizes that include £5000 in cash and paid internships at the Magnum Photos offices in either London or New York.
