Los Angeles, CA—The annual Lucie Awards gala returns to New York City to celebrate photography with a stellar lineup of honorees. The event will also reveal the fourth annual Impact Award recipient. The 19th Lucie Awards’ red carpet gala ceremony will take place at New York’s renowned Zankel Hall in Carnegie Hall on October 25, 2022.
The Lucie Foundation, along with its advisory board, also announced its list of 12 honorees.
“Each year, the Lucie Awards honor the best in our field. Returning to New York City will have extra meaning this year. We are proud to bestow Lucie Awards on 12 beyond-deserving photographers for their extraordinary work—and one more to be announced,” said Hossein Farmani, founder of the Lucie Awards.
“This year, Robert Adams is the recipient of this year’s 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award. At a later date, we will announce the honoree deserving of this year’s Lucie Impact Award; it was created to acknowledge the impact of a photograph or a body of work in a given year.
“We look forward to celebrating these extraordinary lives as well as careers on October 25, at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, which is the Lucie Foundation’s New York home each October.”
