Wellcome Photography Prize 2020



For 2020, our theme is Mental Health, which covers two of our five prize categories. 

At Wellcome, we believe a radical new approach is needed to transform the science of mental health. And with the prize this year we want to transform public perceptions too. We are particularly interested in how we visually address the issue of people living with or recovering from mental health problems.

We are still keen to receive photographs exploring other global health issues that may not relate directly to mental health, in the Social Perspectives, Medicine in Focus and Hidden Worlds categories.

The competition is free to enter and you can submit as many images as you like, except for the Mental Health Series category where you can submit a maximum of five.

You cannot enter the same image in more than one category.

As the image maker you will retain full copyright over your own work. We just ask for permission to use your images for three years in the context of the prize – in exhibitions, promotions, publications and media coverage, including social media.

For winning and shortlisted images only, we also ask for ongoing permission to use your image in the context of the prize and to support Wellcome’s broader charitable work. This is so that we can continue discussions about the health issues and stories to which the images relate.
