This–Ability Photography Award is open to all amateur or professional photographers who can portray a snapshot of a disabled person’s life. Photographic entries should celebrate their story and character, encouraging participants to see disabled persons and disability in a new way.
Challenging stereotypes surrounding disability
Disability is much more than blue badges. The term ‘disability’ is broad and encompasses both visible and non-visible conditions. Did you know that in the UK Dyslexia, Diabetes, Sight loss, Hearing loss, Stammer, Anxiety and Depression are all considered disabilities under the Equality Act 2010?
This award aims to challenge the stereotyping of disabled persons by highlighting that each of us is an individual. Through photography we celebrate our individuality, allowing others to see the disability as one of many aspects that make up a person’s unique identity.
REMEMBER, Disability is not always ‘visible’. There are millions of people who despite the odds, put on a brave face and tender to your needs EVERYDAY. You may not even realise it.
