About the Infinity Awards

Since 1985, the ICP Infinity Awards have recognized major contributions and emerging talent in the fields of photojournalism, art, fashion photography, and publishing. This year’s ceremony will follow the opening of ICP’s brand new integrated space at Essex Crossing on the Lower East Side. 

In becoming the cultural anchor of one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in New York City, our new home will allow us to further instill values of empowerment and social change in our community. ICP will continue to serve more than 6,000 students and teachers through our Community Programs, and facilitate over 400 educational courses per year. Audiences will have access to our expanded galleries featuring an ambitious slate of exhibitions, as well as a stimulating series of Public Programs—all serving as catalysts for crucial conversations about photography and visual culture.

We are proud to acknowledge the 2020 Infinity Award winners for their incredible work and for their extraordinary commitment to raising awareness of critical social issues and telling stories of hope that ICP encourages and supports.
