Announcing a Photography Competition

Peace in Focus 
International Photography Competition

Peace in Focus is launching an international photography competition for youth. Each month, we will accept submissions on a particular theme from young photographers around the world. The themes will reflect the core interests and values of Peace in Focus – youth leadership, non-violence, and socially conscious photography. Participants may submit literal or artistic interpretations of the subject, and photographs will be evaluated on their creativity, social message, and unique framing of the topic. Winners will receive a $25 prize and will be featured on our blog and website. All entries will be included in a monthly online slideshow, highlighting the vision and voices of young people around the world. 

  • Photographers must be 25 years old or under to be eligible to win.
  • Photographers may submit one to three photographs depicting the month’s theme. Each photograph or photo-essay must be accompanied by a title and caption that explains the photographer’s message or point of view.
  • Submissions must be emailed to peaceinfocus@gmail.com by the 1st of each month. Remember to include your name, age, address, phone number, photo title and caption.
  • Please note that by participating in this competition, you grant permission for Peace in Focus to feature your work online and/or in print materials.
