2000-07-28 until 2000-08-31
The Citibank Private Bank Photography Prize is launching the 2001 Prize, worth £15,000, with a
call for nominations. The Prize was established in 1996 to reward the individual who is judged to
have made the most significant contribution to the medium of photography over the past year,
and aims to recognise a wide range of work including photojournalism, documentary, fashion
and fine art photography.
Now in its fifth year, The Citibank Private Bank Photography Prize is firmly established as a
leading international award. Each year a jury, composed of individuals from varying
backgrounds, select a shortlist and then the overall winner of the Prize. This year's jury is: David
Chandler, Director of Photoworks, England; Ute Eskildsen, curator, Museum Folkwang, Essen,
Germany; Catherine Yass, artist, London. Ian Dunlop, Fine Art Consultant, who will be the
non-voting chairman of the jury.
In its five year history, The Citibank Private Bank Photography Prize has recognised a high
calibre of winners: Anna Gaskell (America, 2000), Rineke Dijkstra (The Netherlands, 1999),
Andreas Gursky (Germany, 1998) and Richard Billingham (UK, 1997).
The work of the shortlisted artists for the 2001 Prize will be exhibited at The Photographers'
Gallery, London from 2 February - 24 March 2001, with the winner announced in March.
Last year The Citibank Private Bank Photography Prize received over 350 nominations, and the
final exhibition was attended by over 62,000 people.
