ICP’s Infinity Awards were inaugurated in 1985 to bring public attention to outstanding achievements in photography by honoring individuals with distinguished careers in the field and by identifying future luminaries.

The Cornell Capa, Lifetime Achievement, and Trustees Award recipients are selected by ICP’s Board of Trustees, President’s Council, or staff. Other recipients are chosen by a Selection Committee from the submissions of a rotating International Nominating Committee.
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.
