Deadline: 28 October 2020. COVID-19: The Bigger Picture. Capture the untold consequences of COVID-19 on people’s lives and livelihoods through the power of photography.
Could your picture tell a thousand words? Then the camera is in your hands. Our photo competition is open to anyone with a passion for turning the lens on the real lives behind the headlines, and an ability to capture the most powerful images of the pandemic’s impact on everyday people. You don’t have to be a photographer or a journalist to apply; we’re calling for all visual storytellers to capture the untold consequences of COVID-19 on people’s lives and livelihoods.
Awards will be given for the three best photographs. The winning entries will be those that, in the opinion of the competition judges best visually capture the human impact of COVID-19 in its myriad forms.
All text accompanying entries must be submitted in English (for non- English entries a translation in English must be provided).
• All the recipients of the Award (the “Winners”) will receive an Award certificate.
• Winners will be granted attendance to an online photojournalism masterclass run by the Thomson Reuters Foundation. This masterclass will allow the Winners to enhance their skills as well as identify how to best capture images to tell stories.
• Each Winner will also each be offered the unique opportunity to work alongside the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s news team on a piece of photojournalism content selected by the Thomson Reuters Foundation that will be shared via the Reuters wire, a global distribution news network.
The prizes for the Winners are as described above, on the Organisers’ websites (http://omidyar.com ; http://www.trust.org) and/or on http://covid19-biggerpicture.trust.org/ (‘’Award Website’’). No transfer, refund, cash redemption, substitution, cash equivalent or replacement of any prize by any Winner is permitted, except that the Organisers reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to substitute a prize of equal or greater value (or cash equivalent). In the event the approximate retail value of a prize is different from the actual retail value of that prize, the difference will not be awarded in cash. Applicable taxes are the sole responsibility of the Winner. Any portion of the prize not accepted or unclaimed and/or unused by any Winner will be forfeited and will not be substituted. In no event will more than the stated number of prizes be awarded.
