Wellcome Trust (Wellcome)

Photographers and other image makers from all disciplines are invited to enter the Wellcome Photography Prize (overall winner £15,000).

Previously the Wellcome Image Awards, the newly relaunched competition will reward pictures that show the importance of health in society and the impact health issues have on people and communities worldwide.

Wellcome is looking for entries that can captivate people with stories of science and medicine, and start conversations about some of the health challenges humanity faces today.

The competition is open to people from a variety of professions, including research scientists, a documentary or clinical photographers, artists, and photojournalists.

The overall winner of Wellcome Photography Prize will receive £15,000, with the winner of each of the four categories receiving £1,250. Prizes will be presented at an awards ceremony in London in summer 2019.

The deadline to apply is December 17, 2018.
