Established 10 years ago as a tribute to four humanitarian workers who were murdered in the field, the Luis Valtueñ a International Humanitarian Photography Award invites photographers around the world to capture the essence of humanitarian and solidarity values and actions in scenes they have witnessed first-hand during the previous 12 months .

From the Lebanon to Sierra Leone, Spain to the Philippines, photographers in this year’s award cover the experiences of people living in conditions unimaginable for most of us.
These disturbing images expose the cruelty, poverty and ignorance that are affecting the lives of millions around the world while focusing on the personal through the exploration of everyday stories.

The images in this show, including many by established international photographers , were selected from over 300 works submitted this year.
In addition to the photographs in the annual competition we are pleased to show a retrospective exhibition of winning images from the last decade.

The poetry event is organised by Siofra McSherry in collaboration with Exiled writers Ink
