The Capricious Photo Award is an annual international competition, granting one emerging photographer the opportunity to publish a limited edition book.


The Capricious Award will provide one photographer with the resources and editorial support to bring a body of work to fruition. The award will be juried by photographers, critics and curators, with the intent to select a photographer whose work is both distinct in point of view and boldly relevant to the unfolding issues of our time.

What winners receive

The recipient will be awarded with resources, valued at $10,000, geared towards the production of a limited edition book. This includes access to our in-house design and editing team and international distribution.

About Capricious

Founded as a fine art photography magazine in 2004 by Sophie Mörner, Capricious Magazine has provided an unparalleled international platform for emerging and underrepresented photographers over the span of nearly 15 years.

With this award we close Capricious as a magazine, and introduce a new platform that will act as conduit to the shapeshifting function and fine art of photography while broadening the public’s perspectives on photography at-large.
