The Leopold Godowsky, Jr. Color Photography Awards honor the co-inventor of Kodachrome film. Established
by the Godowsky family in 1987 and held every four years, the awards recognize "achieved excellence in color photography."
Focusing on emerging and under-recognized artists and new approaches to color photography, the 2014 Godowsky Color Awards were granted on the basis of the strength and originality of the photographic work. The 2014 awards were international and open to artists working in any form of color photography.
Though Kodachrome was discontinued shortly before the previous Godowsky Color Awards in 2009, the PRC recognizes the legacy of Godowsky and celebrates the diverse and innovative approaches to color photography today.
