THEME:
HUMANS OF THE WORLD

OPEN FOR ENTRIES
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 30 SEPTEMBER 2020

7.8 billion people on Earth and counting. Each of us a unique combination of genetics and experience, and yet we remain connected. Across vast geographies and wide cultural boundaries our humanity unites us.

From individuals to crowds. Formal portraits or snapshots of strangers. Social, national, personal and sexual identity. Faces and bodies, hearts and minds. This month, show us the humans of the world. Portraiture, studio, candid, conceptual, travel, street, composite, environmental. All genres welcome.
