The Festival of Ethical Photography, now in its 9th edition, was born in 2010 from the idea of Gruppo Fotografico Progetto Immagine with the intention of focusing on ethical content of great relevance. Thanks to a rich program of exhibitions by international and award-winning photojournalists, there are meetings, workshops, portfolio reviews, video-projections and numerous other events that investigate the relationship between ethics, communication and photography.

In 2011, the Festival started the World Report Award | Documenting Humanity. This award aims at a new form of social commitment through photography. It gives attention to works focusing on people and their social and cultural stories, and it is intended to support photographers who care about this kind of photography.
