Opening: October 10th
Foto Colectania collaborates with the Futbol Club Barcelona in the organization of the first edition of the FCBarcelona Photo Awards.

The FCBarcelona Photo Awards consist of two categories, the Photo Award, that rewards a single image, and the Project Award, which is a production grant to a photo story.
Both categories are backed by a jury of extraordinary prestige, consisting of:
Photo Award: Vicente Todolí (President), Sandra Phillips and Alex Webb.
Project Award: Ayperi Karabuda Ecer (President), Stephen Mayes and Azu Nwagbogu.
Registration is open until December 31st, 2016.
