Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights, has announced its third worldwide photography competition. The competition aims to celebrate photography as a powerful medium for raising awareness of tribal peoples, their unique ways of life and the threats to their existence. Both amateur and professional photographers are encouraged to enter.

Survival said photographs can be submitted under categories; Guardians: images showing tribal peoples as guardians of the natural world; Community: portraits of relationships between individuals, families or tribes and Survival: images showing tribal peoples’ extraordinarily diverse ways of life.

The judging panel includes Survival’s Director Stephen Corry, Survival Italy Coordinator Francesca Casella, The Little Black Gallery Co-Founder Ghislain Pascal, and Max Houghton, Senior Lecturer in Photography at the London College of Communication.

The twelve winning entries will be published in Survival’s 2017 calendar, with the overall winner’s image featuring on the cover. All submitted photographs must have been taken in the last 10 years. The closing date for entries is April 30, 2016.
