Visual Storytelling Awards recognize the work of photographers weaving compelling narratives into their work. Show us how you’re using photography to chronicle world events or the experiences of those closest to you. Take our breath away with narrative images that challenge our thinking, expand our understanding or hit a chord with our emotions. Surprise us, delight us, confront us.
Visual Storytelling Awards aims to uncover photographers from diverse backgrounds and experience levels, share their work with the world and connect them with career-changing opportunities.
International jury is looking for image makers who are defining contemporary visual storytelling, whether that be through documentary work, imaginative storytelling, or something that combines (or defies!) all of the above. Show us how you’re using photography to chronicle world events or the experiences of those closest to you.
Visual Storytelling Awards category
•Documentary – Documentary-based interpretations of real events, people, places and issues. Traditional or contemporary, these visual stories and narrative moments offer insights into the worlds with we live in.
•Imaginative Storytelling – Based on fact, fiction, or a combination of both. Perhaps you’re approaching a documentary story in a conceptual way. Perhaps you’re mixing photography with other media or constructing imagery to achieve your unique vision.
