Pride Photo Award is an annual international photo contest for photos about sexual and gender diversity

The Call is OPEN!

For the 2024 edition of the Pride Photo Award we have chosen to remain without a specific theme. We strive to expand our horizons, and those of our audiences, through a rich, multi-faceted and diverse collection of stories from the global LGBTQIA+ community. We invite you all to apply, and hope to see this openness reflected in the submissions. Show us the images that the world needs to see, that will open eyes, make people think, and contribute to understanding and tolerance towards the community. The call is OPEN! Are you entering this year?
