Wellcome Photography Prize 2019


17th December 2018

Who may enter
The competition is open to anyone.

The competition is organized by the Wellcome Trust. Photographers are invited to submit images that captured stories of health, medicine and science. 

Previously the Wellcome Image Awards, our newly relaunched competition will reward pictures that show the importance of health in society and the impact health issues have on people and communities worldwide. We’re looking for entries that can captivate people with stories of science and medicine, and start conversations about some of the health challenges humanity faces today.

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

Entry fees
The competition is free to enter.

The winner of each category will receive £1,250, with the overall winner receiving a prize of £15,000
