Youmanity is inviting photographers, whether amateur or professional anywhere in the world, to submit photographs for the 2019 Youmanity Photography Award, which theme this year is ‘Friend-Ship’. This award celebrates friendships and seeks to encourage engagement and connection with friends and long-lost friends, relatives and those who have always been there for the entrants.
Deeming friends are vital to our lives and our mental health, Youmanity is inviting photographers to celebrate friendship and the friends to whom we owe so much, by taking a portrait of that special person or capturing a moment which embodies this treasured connection.
The top 20 entries will be showcased at the House of Commons from 2 to 5 December 2019. The winning portrait will be awarded £1,000 cash prize. The winning photograph and runners-up will be exhibited as part of a group exhibition at the Palace of Westminster from 2 to 7 December 2019.
Eligible entrants are all photographers, whether amateur or professional, of all nationalities, who are at least 18 years of age. The entry must be accompanied by a 30-word artistic statement. Only 1 entry per person is allowed and the photograph must be in colour. Entrants must have the rights to upload the photo.
Photographs should be in JPEG format and of up to 3MB each.
The judges are looking for visual impact, originality, and sensitivity.
Applications are to be done online by 26 October 2019.
