This year, the Wellcome Photography Prize is exploring the human side of three urgent health challenges: mental health problems, infectious diseases and global heating.
These challenges affect people of all ages, in all parts of the world – although their effects are not felt equally.
But there is hope. People and communities around the world are coming up with ingenious ways to manage mental health, control the spread of infections, and adapt to the local health risks of global heating. Theirs are the voices we want to hear – the inspiring stories that need to be shown and shared.
Wellcome Trust is looking for entries that can captivate people with stories of science and medicine, and start conversations about some of the health challenges humanity faces today.
– Managing Mental Health
– Fighting Infections
– Health in a Heating World
