FK Prize is held annually since 2015 and is open to photographers from Latvia only. Its objective is to offer a platform for young Latvian photographers to reach wider audience with their works. The competition takes place in two rounds. In the first round FK editors select 10 finalists from open call applications. In the second round finalists present their work as slide projection to jury and audience, the event is open to general public and the admission is free. One winner is awarded the prize – Sony camera and also the opportunity to show their work on FK Magazine. The last final took place on 9 May 6pm at the Mill (Brīvibas street 99) during Riga Photomonth opening week.
