Portrait of Humanity 2020 – Photography Award

The Portrait of Humanity – a photography award that seeks to prove there is more that unites us than sets us apart – is accepting entries for 2020.

1854 Media, publisher of British Journal of Photography, is inviting photographers of any level, to show the world through their eyes, to capture the many faces of humanity, and to document the universal expressions of life; laughter, courage, moments of reflection, journeys to work, first hellos, last goodbyes, and everything in between. What’s normal to you might be extraordinary to someone else.

As part of Portrait of Humanity 2020, 200 shortlisted photographs will be published in the Portrait of Humanity Book, Vol.2 and 30 winning images and three winning bodies of work will be exhibited at various locations across the world. Up to 100 commended images will also be exhibited digitally on Clear Channel screens internationally to be seen by millions.

All commended, shortlisted and winning photographers will receive extensive international press coverage.

At its core, Portrait of Humanity is a celebration of our shared values: Individuality, Community, and Unity.

In 2018, 1854 Media, publisher of British Journal of Photography, together with Magnum Photos created Portrait of Humanity, a timely reminder that we are all united by our shared humanity.
