Portrait of Humanity 2020

Portrait of Humanity is a global photography award born from a mission to prove there is more that unites us than sets us apart. It is one of the most viewed photographic exhibitions in history. 2020 has been a year of unprecedented global struggle. Perhaps now more than ever, we can find solace in what makes us human: the universal expressions of life that prove, after everything, we are made of the same things. First hellos. Last goodbyes. Moments of reflection. Periods of resilience. Stories of hope. Strives for change. And everything in between.

Deadline: 22 October 2020
