Wellcome Photography Prize

Wellcome Photography Prize

Deadline: December 17, 2018
Entry fee: Free
Prizes: £1,250, £15,000, exhibition

We invite photographers and other image makers from all disciplines to enter the Wellcome Photography Prize, which celebrates compelling imagery that captures stories of health, medicine and science.

Previously the Wellcome Image Awards, our newly relaunched competition will reward pictures that show the importance of health in society and the impact health issues have on people and communities worldwide.

We’re looking for entries that can captivate people with stories of science and medicine, and start conversations about some of the health challenges humanity faces today.

All the winning and shortlisted entries will go on show in a major public exhibition at Lethaby Gallery, Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London.
