Following Portrait of Britain, the largest ever exhibition of contemporary portrait photography, a call is now open for photographers to enter a new international award, Portrait of Humanity.
This global initiative from 1854 Media, publisher of British Journal of Photography, with Magnum Photos aims to use the power of photography to capture and celebrate the humanity that unites us all.
The competition, which is open photographers of any level, is searching for images which portray the unity of human beings around the world, by expressing the universal through the individual.
The aim is to create one of the greatest collaborative photography exhibitions in history, capturing the many faces of humanity, and documenting the universal expressions of life; laughter, courage, moments of reflection, journeys to work, first hellos, last goodbyes, and everything that happens in between.
Entries are open to all interpretations of portraiture; self-portraits, group pictures, street photography and close on 8 January 2019. Photographers of the winning three images will share $10,000 in grant awards to create projects that explore their interpretations of humanity.
The 200 shortlisted photographs will be featured in the Portrait of Humanity book and 50 winning images will be exhibited at various locations around the world from September – December 2019.
