The 2016 Envision Kindness Student Photography & Film Contest

The 2016 Envision Kindness Student Photography & Film Contest

This international community building program is truly a unique opportunity for photography and photojournalism students to inspire others, have their photography seen, and win cash! Open to all photography and photojournalism students 18 years and older (college major/minor, workshop or seminar attendee, etc.) all over the world, this program challenges photographers to interpret kindness through their own unique lenses. Unfortunately, this contest is not open to professional photographers at this time. All submissions must be uplifting and have kindness and/or compassion as a central theme. Participants may submit up to five entries in our two distinct divisions (below), broken down into five distinct categories:

In the Documentary Division, participants may submit either a
1) Single Photo
2) Photo Series of at least 3 connected/related images or
3) Documentary Film (3-5 minutes long).
Submissions in this division capture actual, real-world acts of kindness or compassion.

In the Illustrative (Interpretive) Division: participants may submit either a
1) Single Photo, or
2) Photo Series of at least 3 related images.
Submissions in this division are staged or otherwise illustrative of kindness and/or compassion.

We will award FOUR cash prizes in each of the categories above, including 1st Place, 2nd Place, and 3rd Place – each determined by a panel of distinguished judges (details below), as well as a Popular Choice prize determined by public voting. So there are multiple opportunities to win cash with every entry. Participants may submit up to 5 total entries. There is a $1 fee per entry.

Our distinguished judging panels include:

Documentary Single: Ed Kashi (photojournalist and member of VII Photo Agency)

Documentary Film: Elaine Sheldon (documentary filmmaker and 2016 Chicken & Egg Breakthrough Filmmaker Awardee)

Illustrative Single Image: Vincent Versace (Nikon Ambassador and recipient of Computerworld Smithsonian Award and Shellenberg Fine Art award)

Early registration and submission are also important! Everyone who registers by April 4, 2016 will be automatically entered into a raffle to win one of three $100 gift cards to a photography superstore. Your registration will also allow us to keep you updated with contest news and announcements. We will not share your information with any third parties.

All participants who submit their entries by May 1, 2016 will be automatically entered into a raffle to win tuition-free attendance to one of David LaBelle’s workshops (does not include cost of travel, food or accommodations). David is the author of “The Great Picture Hunt” and Photojournalism Director at Kent State University.

Through the power of your lenses, YOU can inject a much-needed dose of kindness into your communities and beyond. We hope that you will picture a better world with us.

Inspire people. Have your work seen. And win cash. What do you have to lose?
