Survival launches worldwide tribal photography contest
Following the success of its first-ever photography competition, Survival International – the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights – is proud to announce its second worldwide photography contest.
The competition aims to celebrate photography as a powerful medium for raising awareness of tribal peoples, their unique ways of life and the threats to their existence.
Both amateur and professional photographers are encouraged to enter. Photographs can be submitted in the following categories:
- Guardians: images showing tribal peoples as guardians of the natural world;
- Community: portraits of relationships between individuals, families or tribes;
- Survival: images showing tribal peoples’ extraordinarily diverse ways of life.
The judging panel includes Survival’s Director Stephen Corry, Survival Italy Coordinator Francesca Casella, The Little Black Gallery Co-Founder Ghislain Pascal, and Max Houghton (Senior Lecturer in Photography at the London College of Communication).
The twelve winning entries will be published in Survival’s 2016 calendar, with the overall winner’s image featuring on the cover.
The closing date for entries is April 30, 2015.
