Last fall, UBC announced the creation of the Allard Prize for International Integrity, a large prize dedicated to the international fight against corruption and protecting human rights. A supplementary prize was also created, the Allard Prize Photo Competition, to recognize photographic excellence that reflects the ideals of the Allard Prize.
The Competition jury has selected three outstanding photographs as the finalists. Those photographs can be seen on the Allard Prize website for the next six months. The photographers are Katharina Hesse of Germany and Somenath Mukhopadhyay of India.
The winner of the inaugural Allard Prize will be announced on September 25, 2013.
