The Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation

The Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation for Documentary Photography and Film aspires to encourage a new generation of photographers and filmmakers, armed with only a camera and a vision of a better world, to take to the streets every day and document humanity on the move. By rewarding the dedication and determination of emerging photographers and film makers, the foundation’s mission is to support photo and film reportage as a catalyst for change and social justice in communities where needs are most pressing.
