REFLEX - CAIS Photography Award

Edition 2018 - URBAN ART

In this 12th edition of the REFLEX - CAIS | NOVO BANCO Photography Award, the goal is to highlight this art form that contributes to the growing urban space that surrounds us, a life that accompanies us and that is born, in the forms more varied, filling our daily life with a beauty, color and movement where so many times less expect.

The registration phase is completed and after the jury deliberated, the thirty finalists and the winners will be revealed to the public at an inaugural exhibition in early March 2019 at the time and place to be announced.

The four best photographs will receive NOVO BANCO prizes worth € 1,000, € 600, € 400 and € 300. The winners will also receive an offer / equipment check and subscriptions from the magazine "O Mundo da Fotografia".

The finalist photographs will also be published in the March issue of CAIS Magazine.


By merging into one the "CAIS Photography Award", organised by the CAIS Association, and the "A Certain Look" contest, organised by NOVO BANCO, the two institutions forged a partnership in the area of photography and launched the REFLEX Photography Award, a new award aimed at valorising photography in Portugal.

This award not only reinforces the partnership between the two institutions but amplifies the positive impacts on the only initiative in Portugal that allies photography to socially relevant issues. The REFLEX prize thus combines the mission of social commitment of the CAIS Association and the corporate social responsibility strategy of NOVO BANCO as the Patron of Photography in Portugal.
