Attention, photography enthusiasts!

I’m thrilled to announce the 2012 Photoshare Photo Contest! This contest, now in its 8th year, is a popular international event mobilizing amateur and professional photographers to share their photos for charitable and educational use. Contest entries are eligible for a top prize of $1,000 USD. The deadline for submitting photos is December 17, 2012. Entries are accepted through Photoshare's Upload Photos submission form.

This year we’re continuing our invaluable partnership with HIFA2015 (Healthcare Information For All by 2015) through our featured category, Healthcare Providers. This partnership spotlights the critical role of health professionals working to improve the availability and use of healthcare information in developing countries.  In addition to cash prizes awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, participants submitting entries to the featured Healthcare Providers category are also eligible for an additional cash prize, the HIFA2015 Photography Award.


Photoshare's 8th annual photo contest partners with HIFA2015 to highlight the work of healthcare workers around the world.

I encourage anyone interested in Photoshare's mission to participate. The contest is a great incentive for those who would otherwise share photos year-round but have trouble finding the time. It's a fun and rewarding way to support Photoshare’s global efforts in health and development photography, and to help build the Photoshare collection.

  • Health Care Providers (*Featured Category: HIFA2015 Photography Award)
  • Family Planning and Reproductive Health
  • Malaria
