Pride Photo Award is an annual international contest for photos about sexual (LGBT) and gender diversity. We are looking for top quality photography on the following topics:
- non-stereotypical images of gender, masculinity and femininity
- the diversity of the LGBT community
Unique: 2019 Theme Category
For the 2019 edition we are looking for special stories images of special (LGBTIQ+) people. The theme covers both surprising angles and innovative ways of telling a story about sexual and gender diversity, as stories that focus on unusual and unique LGBTIQ+ indivuals or groups.
Entries that combine both a unique approach and a unique subject around the topic of sexual and gender diversity, have the best chance to win in this category.
This is a broad thematic category for photo series that tell a story about sexual and gender diversity. This includes but is not limited to documentary photo series. Stories entered in this category do not have to be related to the theme ‘Insiders / Outsiders’. If you feel your series could fit equally well in this category and in the theme category, we advise to enter it in the theme category.
This is a category strong photos that convey the message of sexual or gender diversity in a single image.
Single images entered in any of the three other categories will automatically be transferred to this category.
Photo series about sexual and gender diversity that do not fit in any of the above categories may be entered in this category.
Some photos or series will fit in more than one of the above categories. Any image can be entered in one category only.
- Single images must have been taken in the period starting on 1 January 2016 and ending August 25th 2019.
- Photo stories/series must have been completed or first published in the period starting on 1 January 2016 and ending August 25th 2019.
