Portrait of Humanity

Competition summary:

Portrait of Humanity is a new global initiative by 1854 Media, publisher of British Journal of Photography, in partnership with Magnum Photos.

It serves as a timely reminder, that despite our many differences, we are able to unite as a global community through the power of photography, to create one of the greatest collaborative photography exhibitions in history.

At its core, Portrait of Humanity will be a celebration of our shared values:

Individuality - Community - Unity

We are inviting photographers of any level, to show us 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.

200 shortlisted will be published in the Portrait of Humanity Book, and 50 winning images will be exhibited at various locations across the world. Second and third place winners will each receive $2,500, and one first place winner will receive $5,000 to create a project exploring their interpretation of humanity.

Be part of the movement. Together, we will create a Portrait of Humanity.
