Our first giveaway is a set of five collectable signed photo books by eminent photographers whose participation has helped make ONWARD such a success since its inception in 2008. Every year a distinguished photographer serves as our keynote speaker and competition juror, sharing the fruits of their experience to support emerging photographers. Over the past seven years, each of these renowned artists has lent a discerning eye to choose finalists and ultimately a single outstanding photographer from among the talented ONWARD Compé contestants.
