The award was established as the Cord Prize in 2013 by EA Lindsay, to support contemporary photography. The 2013 judges were Charlotte Cotton and Diana Edkins, and the first prize of $10,000 was won by Eva Stenram for her work Drape. In 2014 Lindsay formed a collaboration with Source magazine to create the Source-Cord Prize.
