PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION – Diversity in Disability

Melbourne Disability Institute: Professional and amateur photographers across Australia are invited to enter our Diversity in Disability photography competition for a chance to showcase original images that represent the full spectrum of diversity and share in a prize pool of up to $5,000 cash.

The Brief

We are looking for original, meaningful and high quality photographs that illustrate diverse representations of disability across a broad range of settings; for example, at home, on public transport, at work, shopping, socialising, studying, eating out, in your local neighbourhood, on holiday, with friends.

The images can feature individuals or groups, children, adults and young people with disability. We encourage submissions that represent the diversity of disability, including women and men, people of colour, mental health, chronic illness, psychosocial disability and invisible disabilities. We are also interested in images that represent disability inclusion in the broader community, accessible spaces and inclusive environments.

Works can be new or existing and must be suitable for publishing on our website, in our reports and event listings, and on our social media channels.

Please note that each entry must be supported by a statement explaining how the images fit the brief.

Submissions open today and close 3 May 2019.
