Infinity Awards


Infinity Awards

The Infinity Awards were inaugurated in 1985 by the International Center of Photography "to bring public attention to outstanding achievements in photography by honoring individuals with distinguished careers in the field and by identifying future luminaries."

The Infinity Awards ceremony is ICP's primary fund-raising benefit, and the revenues generated assist the full range of the Center's programs, including exhibitions, collections, community outreach, and the ICP School.

The Cornell Capa, Lifetime Achievement, and ICP Trustees Award recipients are specially elected each year. Other recipients are chosen by a Selection Committee from the submissions of an International Nominating Committee, whose members change each year.

The Infinity Award, designed by Louis Dorfsman, is a replica of a sprocketed 35mm film fashioned into an infinity symbol, embedded in a Lucite rectangle and inscribed with the recipient's name. This symbol was chosen "because the possibilities of the photographic medium are virtually infinite."
