Wellcome Photography Prize 2020

Wellcome Photography Prize 2020

Whether you are a professional, student or amateur photographer, you’re invited to enter the Wellcome Photography Prize 2020, which celebrates compelling imagery that will encourage conversations about the health challenges of our time.

For 2020, our theme is Mental Health, which covers two of our five prize categories.

At Wellcome, we believe a radical new approach is needed to transform the science of mental health. And with the prize this year we want to transform public perceptions too. We’re looking for photographs that present refreshing, genuine insights into mental health and mental health problems, and avoid stereotypes and cliché.

We are still keen to receive photographs exploring other global health issues that may not relate directly to mental health, in the Social Perspectives, Medicine in Focus and Hidden Worlds categories.
