During our live-stream broadcast, you will have a chance to view the selections of the preliminary-round judges as Leslie, Lawrence and Jide curate a final gallery of award-winning photographs.  

This final round of judging is a transparent, two-day process that is constructive and engaging, aimed at helping photographers expand their thinking about their craft.  As Leslie, Lawrence and Jide narrow down the photos in each category, they will discuss what makes a great documentary photograph or series and the reasoning behind their final selection of award winners and honorable mentions.

This week’s broadcast is free to the public while it is being live-streamed.  Anyone who submitted to this round of the DFA’s will also receive a free subscription to re-watch the recording of the broadcast after it ends.

We hope you join us as we review the inspiring work of your fellow photographers and watch the announcements of the latest DFA winners!
