Calling All Photographers: Announcing the 12th Annual Photoshare Photo Contest

David Alexander

CCP | Photoshare Manager

It’s my pleasure to announce the 12th Annual Photoshare Photo Contest! Photoshare’s annual contest recognizes the best in global health and development photography and rewards the talents and generosity of amateur and professional photographers who share photos for charitable and educational use.

This year, Photoshare has partnered with Girls' Globe to present a new Sexual and Reproductive Health category. Photoshare will recognize this featured category with its first social-media-powered prize, the Photoshare People’s Choice Award. In addition to this special content focus, Photoshare continues its partnership with HIFA (Healthcare Information For All), on the Healthcare Providers category, which focuses on the critical role of health care information and health workers and is recognized with the HIFA Photo Award.

The contest has a top prize of $1,000; the deadline for entries is April 10, 2017. Submit your entries through Photoshare's online photo submission form.

About Photoshare

The 12th Annual Photoshare Photo Contest is brought to you by K4Health, a USAID-funded project at the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP), in partnership with FHI 360, IntraHealth International, and Management Sciences for Health (MSH). Girls’ Globe and HIFA provide additional support.

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

Prizes and Awards

The contest awards cash prizes to first-, second-, and third-place winners. Participants submitting entries to the featured Sexual and Reproductive Health category are also eligible for the Photoshare People’s Choice Award, presented by Girls’ Globe. Entries in the Healthcare Providers category are also eligible for an additional cash prize, the HIFA-sponsored Photography Award.
