The 38th annual ICP Infinity Awards will take place on Monday, April 25, 2022 at the Ziegfeld Ballroom. This year we will focus on the environment. As an institution that stands for concerned photography and using art as a catalyst for social change, we recognize the relevancy and urgency of prioritizing environmental sustainability. We will be honoring visionaries who are raising awareness of conservation, environmental justice, and climate change through their body of work. Honorees will be announced in January 2022.

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 follows the opening of ICP’s brand new integrated space at Essex Crossing on the Lower East Side. Despite temporarily closing our new home, ICP remains focused on continuing to provide compelling content and programming, as well as ways for our community to stay connected.
