We invite photographers and other image makers from all disciplines to enter the Wellcome Photography Prize, which celebrates compelling imagery that captures stories of health, medicine and science.
How to enter
The deadline for entries is 17 December 2018.
The competition is free to enter and you can submit as many images as you like, but you can’t enter the same image in more than one category. Each entry will be judged individually and should work as a standalone image.
If you’re submitting more than one image from the same series, consider which images have the most impact and only submit those that offer something unique.
As the image maker you will retain full copyright over your own work. We just ask for permission to use your images in the context of the prize (in exhibitions, promotions, publications and media coverage including social media) for three years.
For winning and shortlisted images only, we also ask for ongoing permission to use your image in the context of the prize and to support Wellcome’s broader charitable work. This is so that we can continue discussions about the health issues and stories to which the images relate.
Read the competition terms and conditions for more information.
Prizes and publicity
The winner of each category will receive £1,250, with the overall winner receiving a prize of £15,000. Prizes will be presented at an awards ceremony in London on 3 July 2019.
All the winning and shortlisted entries will go on show in a major public exhibition at Lethaby Gallery, Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, from 4-13 July 2019.
If you’re a winner, we will also offer you opportunities to take part in events to showcase your work to a range of audiences. Our winning images receive extensive international media coverage each year.
The winner of the Medicine in Focus category will be invited to produce the Julie Dorrington commission, a photo story exploring and documenting a patient’s journey with their condition.
There are four categories in the competition:
- Social perspectives – explore how health and illness affect the way we live
- Hidden worlds – reveal details hidden to the naked eye
- Medicine in focus – show health and healthcare up close and personal
- Outbreaks (2019 theme) – capture the impact of disease as it spreads.
The images shown in each category are to inspire you but are for illustration only. Your entry doesn’t necessarily need to be in a similar style or about a similar topic. We’re open to all perspectives.
