Who may enter
The competition is open to anyone.

The Wellcome Photography Prize is an international competition run by the Wellcome Trust.

This year, the Wellcome Photography Prize is exploring the human side of three urgent health challenges: mental health problems, infectious diseases and global heating.

These challenges affect people of all ages, in all parts of the world – although their effects are not felt equally.

But there is hope. People and communities around the world are coming up with ingenious ways to manage mental health, control the spread of infections, and adapt to the local health risks of global heating. Theirs are the voices we want to hear – the inspiring stories that need to be shown and shared.

This year there are three themes:

Managing Mental Health
Fighting Infections
Health in a Heating World

You may submit single images and series (3-5 photos).

Entries must be submitted through the online submission platform.

Entry fees
The competition is free to enter.

The finalists of each category will receive £1,000.

The single image and series winners will each receive £10,000.
