THE HUMAN
BODY

Deadline: 31 December 2019

A home for the brain, the heart and the soul. Let’s look at the image of the human body… from the head to the toes; its flaws, its quirks, uniqueness and beauty. Freeze a detail or a scene that captures our human nature. With over seven billion bodies to choose from, show us the ones that count.

Portraiture, candid, studio, conceptual, documentary… any genre, and tasteful nudity welcome.

Judge: Joachim Ladefoged

For 28 years Joachim Ladefoged has worked in more than 60 countries, winning international recognition for documenting conflict and ordinary life around the world for outlets such as The New Yorker, Mare, Newsweek, and TIME. His photos have won international awards such as Visa D’Or, POYi and Agfa, and he was the first Dane to win first prize stories at the World Press Photo Awards. He is credited with being one of the driving forces behind the 90’s wave of Danish photojournalism and he has been a member of VII photo agency since 2004.
