CALL FOR ENTRIES

Share your work with an international audience

 
Pride Photo Award is calling for entries. This award, now in its fourth successful year, is dedicated to highlighting 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

Photographers are invited to enter their work via the contest page before 13th July 23.59h Central European Summer Time (CEST),  with an option to submit in four categories, Documentary, Gender, Open and a theme category.  This year’s thought-provoking theme, Getting Closer, was inspired by a quote from legendary photographer and founder of Magnum, Robert Capa: “If your photos aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough.”

You can register and submit your photos through the contest website. In case of technical problems with the submission, please consult the help file.

By registering for the contest you confirm that you have read and accept the 2014 contest rules and declaration. This contains information about the maximum number of photos you can submit and the material specifications.

A jury of internationally renowned photography experts will judge the entries and select the winners, who will be announced on July 24th 2014.

The first prize winners in every category will be flown to Amsterdam to attend the Awards Ceremony. The Awards Ceremony will take place on August 29th, at the Amsterdam’s historic Old Church.

The Pride Photo Award exhibition will be on display there for two months and is expected to draw 20.000 visitors.

 

The categories for 2014

 
Pride Photo Award is a 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

Photos that fit these topics can be entered in one of four categories. The four categories for the 2014 edition of Pride Photo Award are:

 

GENDER

This is a broad thematic category for photos that show people with a gender identity that is different from the male/female gender stereotypes. We are looking for images showing that gender is not binary (man/woman) but a continuum with countless variations. Everyone has male and female sides to their personality. This category covers the spectrum of sexual identities and people who have both male and female physical characteristics.

GETTING CLOSER: 2014 THEME CATEGORY

“If your photographs aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.” This famous quote by Robert Capa, legendary photographer and founder of Magnum, inspired the theme of the 2014 edition of Pride Photo Award.

The theme Getting Closer can be interpreted in many ways, such as:

  • getting close to the subject of your photographs
  • the intimacy between people who grow closer during their relationship
  • the way perceptions change when the distance between people is eliminated
  • getting closer to the goal of furthering acceptance of LGBT people

Some photos will fit in more than one of the above categories. Any single photo can be entered in one category only.
