How does it work?

You will have a chance to see our preliminary round judge selections, as well as watch Kirsten, Jenna and Gulnara discuss the photos as they curate them down to the final award winners. This will be a constructive and engaging process aimed at making us all better photographers.

Award winners will be selected during the broadcast as well as honorable mentions. Throughout the selection process, Kirsten, Jenna and Gulnara will discuss what makes a great documentary photograph or series and the reasoning behind their final selection of award winners.

Join us as we review the inspiring work of your fellow photographers and watch the announcements of the latest DFA winners!

See you this Thursday!!
