"Photographers are invited to apply for an opportunity to realise a new body of work with the supervision of several high-profile photographers and industry experts," 1000 Words says.
The award includes a £1000 prize, 18-month mentorship programme, traveling group exhibition, and a feature in the magazine. The winner will also be accepted on "three workshops with Jeffrey Silverthone, Antoine d'Agata and another Magnum photographer in London, Marseille and Seville, respectively".
"An internationally renown jury will review each entry submitted. Their final four will join eight other European photographers selected by Cobertura Photo and Atelier de Visu," 1000 Words says. Simon Baker, curator of photography at Tate, and Brett Rogers, director of The Photographers' Gallery, London, are among the judges.
The 1000 Words award is open to photographers born or based in the European Union. Applicants need to pay a £25 fee, email a portfolio of 10-15 images from a current project, and provide a statement of up to 150 words, or a CV.
The closing date is 23 July.
