British Journal of Photography, together with Magnum Photos, are calling photographers from around the world to enter

PORTRAIT OF HUMANITY

 

We believe that there is more that unites us than sets us apart. Portrait of Humanity is a new initiative, aiming to create one of the most far-reaching collaborative photography exhibitions in history. The Portrait of Humanity photography award is focused on capturing the many faces of humanity. Inspired by individuality, community, and unity, it is a unique opportunity for photographers and individuals to celebrate our existence through the power of photography. 

We want to get an insight into the lives of people from across the globe; to capture laughter, courage, and sorrow, moments of reflection, journeys to work, first hellos, last goodbyes, and everything that happens in between. Entries are open to everyone, and to all interpretations of portraiture; self-portraits, group pictures, street photography. Share with us your depiction of humanity.
