Portrait of Humanity Award 2021
Deadline October 22, 2020
British Journal of Photography / Magnum
International

Portrait of Humanity is a global photography award born from a mission to prove there is more that unites us than sets us apart. It is one of the most viewed photographic exhibitions in history.

First launched in 2018, from 1854 Media, publisher of British Journal of Photography, in collaboration with Magnum Photos, Portrait of Humanity is an open call to photographers to shine a light on what it means to be human in a tumultuous time in our history.

2020 has been a year of unprecedented global struggle. Perhaps now more than ever, we can find solace in what makes us human: the universal expressions of life that prove, after everything, we are made of the same things. First hellos. Last goodbyes. Moments of reflection. Periods of resilience. Stories of hope. Strives for change. And everything in between.

Get exhibited worldwide. Get published in a photo book distributed globally. Have your work judged by a panel of international industry leaders. Enter Portrait of Humanity, and your work could be showcased to tens of millions.

Deadline October 22, 2020

His approach to these concerns is informed by his own experience: as a British citizen with Muslim roots, he is familiar with the challenges his works grapple with. (more…)

A year is also the timeframe of the story chronicled in that project – a love story personal to KHV, which shifts abruptly from its climax to its end when she discovers that X, her lover, is leading a double life – a revelation that prompts the artist to question her certainties.
