The Prize champions contemporary perspectives on the people and stories of the New East — the 29 countries of Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Russia and Central Asia — welcoming the work of professional and non-professional photographers alike. It is a Calvert 22 Foundation initiative supported by The Calvert Journal: the award-winning online magazine dedicated to exploring the culture and creativity of the region.
