Competitions Photoshare: The Knowledge for Health International Photo Contest
International Deadline: June 5, 2018 – The Knowledge for Health (K4Health) Project is pleased to present the 2018 Annual Photoshare Photo Contest, which recognizes amateur and professional photographers who contribute photos for nonprofit and educational use.
The contest has a top prize of US$1,000; the deadline for entries is June 5th, 2018.
The Annual Photoshare Photo Contest has become an international standard for recognizing photographers who contribute their work to freely-available editorial collections like Photoshare, which houses over 30,000 global health and development images. This year, Photoshare has continued its partnership with Girls’ Globe to sponsor a Sexual and Reproductive Health category. Winners in this featured category will be recognized with a social-media-powered prize, the Photoshare People’s Choice Award. In addition, Photoshare continues its long- standing partnership with HIFA (Healthcare Information For All) on the Healthcare Providers category, which focuses on the critical role of health care information and health workers and is recognized with the HIFA Photo Award.
The 2018 Annual Photoshare Photo Contest is supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through K4Health, a USAID-funded project led by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) in partnership with FHI 360, IntraHealth International and Management Sciences for Health (MSH). Girls’ Globe and HIFA provide additional contest support.
Any individual or organization, with the exception of contest judges, is welcome to participate (including both amateur and professional photographers).
