Survival International – the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights – is proud to announce its fourth worldwide photography competition.

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.

The theme this year is tribal conservationists. We’re looking for images that show tribal peoples in their natural environment, as the best conservationists and guardians of the natural world to support Survival’s “Stop the Con!” campaign.

The twelve winning entries will be published in Survival’s 2018 calendar, with the overall winner’s image featuring on the cover.

All submitted photographs must have been taken in the last 10 years.

The closing date for entries is April 30, 2017.
