News Photo Awards. Overcoming COVID until 1 December 2020

Deadline: 1 December 2020. Overcoming COVID in 2020 has become a challenge for millions of people all across the globe. It has also become a professional challenge for photographers. Deep in hospital ‘red zones’ and on deserted city streets, photojournalists have been striving to capture the most vital moments of the global fight against coronavirus. Their work is as essential as that of other professionals, who have had to battle a pandemic of this proportion.

The contest is devoted to the coronavirus pandemic that broke out in 2020 and aims to laud the significance of the work of photojournalists who demonstrated professional heroism during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The jury will select the best snapshots and determine the winners — they will be announced on March 11, 2021 — the anniversary of the announcement of the coronavirus pandemic by the World Health Organization.

There are two nominations under the following categories: one for “Single Photo” and the other for “Picture Series”. The jury will also select the best snapshot out of all those submitted, and that one will be awarded the “Grand Prize”.


Grand Prize – $ 10 000

Main prizes:
Single Photo category $ 3 000
Picture Series category $ 3 000
