Pride Photo Award Calling For Entries


Pride Photo Award is calling for entries. This award, now in its sixth successful year, is dedicated to highlighting sexual and gender diversity. Photographers are invited to enter their work via the contest page before 30 June with an option to submit in four categories: Single Images, Stories, an Open category and a category for the theme of the 2016 edition: Insiders / Outsiders.

The 2016 theme is about communities. The groups of people you (want to) feel a part of, and the people you do or do not welcome in the communities you belong to. It is about joining, belonging, participating and ostracizing. It is about families, society, parishes, clubs, intimate circles. The theme also reflects on the role of the photographer as an outsider or insider, and whether the photographer creates a world that invites the viewer in, or shows the viewer a world they are not a part of, like a voyeur.


The overall winner will be flown to Amsterdam and accommodated at the beautiful Lloyd Hotel to attend the opening weekend and the Award Ceremony on Friday 16 September. 

Amsterdam’s stunning Old Church provides the venue where the one-month exhibition of the winning series will be held. A selection of the photos will also be displayed on large photo panels throughout the city. The exhibition is expected to draw 25.000 visitors. After this initial period the exhibition will travel around the Netherlands and maybe even abroad. The images will be judged by a jury of international photography experts, including gallery artist Sunil Gupta, with their final decision being officially announced on 14 July 2016.

The contest starts on 13 May and ends on 30 June. Pass it on! Please help share this fantastic opportunity with photographers working with gender or sexual diversity by forwarding this Call for Entries in your network!
