PhotoPhilanthropy
Call for entries: Activist Awards
Wednesday, December 5, 2014, midnight PST

“PhotoPhilanthropy believes in the power of photography to inspire hope and understanding and to connect people around the world. The Activist Awards have been established to emphasize the important role of high quality documentary photography and visual storytelling as a vehicle to create meaningful impact and social change.

Photo essays must be entered into one of two categories:

  • Professional Photographer –  $15,000 Grand Prize: Any individual who earns the majority of their living from photography.
  • Emerging Photographer – $5,000 Grand Prize: Any individual who does not earn the majority of their income from photography.

Submission Guidelines
In order to reflect current issues, photographs in the essay must have been taken within the last three years. Long-term projects will be accepted as long as the majority of the photographs were taken within the last three years.

Each photographer may enter up to two essays, and although they can be completed in collaboration with the same nonprofit, the subject matter must be different. Essays entered in previous years may not be resubmitted.”
