Too often they are confronted with racism and xenophobia, transphobia, sexism

The Climate Crisis is a terrifying and nebulous topic so this is a call to action to bring this urgent topic to the forefront of emerging photography.

Feminine / Masculine
Portrayals of femininity and masculinity are, without doubt, central to a number of art forms, photography not being an exception. The past few decades have given rise to – often heated – discussions and criticisms of past, recent, and current photographic practices for their lack of reflection on the assumptions, stereotypes, and prejudices surrounding photographic approaches to femininity and masculinity. Fine art and commercial works alike have been critiqued for the potential consequence

Narrative ~ Figments or Fragments
Juror: Emma Powell The photograph’s power as a narrative tool is derived from the impression that what is captured within the frame is an accurate representation of what actually occurred at a specific moment in time. As complete or comprehensive as any narrative may appear to be, it will always be subject to a process of including some elements and excluding others. These inclusions and exclusion are a crucial part of what photographic storytelling is all about - What is being presente
