FINALISTS FOR THE FPJQ ANTOINE DESILETS AWARD
Since 2005, the Fédération professionnelle des journalistes du Québec (FPJQ) has been awarding the Antoine Desilets award in recognition of the work of press photographers in Quebec media. For the first time, the World Press Photo Montreal exhibition is presenting some twenty finalists in the Arts & Culture, Social Issues, Portrait, Sports and Daily Life categories.
“We’re very excited about this collaboration with World Press Photo Montreal, which will help promote quality photojournalism in Quebec,” says Michaël Nguyen, President of the FPJQ. In 2022, 195 entries and 37 photographers competed in the prize’s seven categories.
The Antoine Desilets Award is one of six accompanying exhibitions presented along the World Press Photo Montreal 2023, in collaboration with the FPJQ.
