The Fondazione Banca del Monte di Lucca, the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, the Fritt Ord Foundation and the Körber-Stiftung – all members of the European Foundation Centre (EFC) – initiated the European Photo Exhibition Award in January 2011 with the aim of creating a new European project for and with European photographic artists who are about to establish their professional careers. The European Photo Exhibition Award has its origins in the German-based Körber-Foto-Award.
