Application Deadline: January 17th 2018
The Diabetes in Pregnancy Photo Contest is open to all photographers who are 18 years old or older. Women Deliver will determine winners’ eligibility in its sole discretion.
Diabetes triggered by pregnancy affects 1 in 7 births — and the vast majority of women affected live in low-and middle-income countries. Together with the World Diabetes Foundation, Women Deliver seeks to elevate the issue of gestational diabetes.
15 prizes will be awarded, as follows:
Grand Prizes: $1,000 awarded to three photographers — Women Deliver will choose one photo from each country (China, India, and Nigeria)
Honorable Mentions: 12 photographers will receive $250 — Women Deliver will choose 4 photos per country (China, India, and Nigeria) submission
Online Features: Women Deliver will select photos for highlight on its website, on social media channels, or display in a publicly accessible contest archive; such selections will be made at Women Deliver’s sole discretion.
What to enter:
All photos entered must highlight subjects, scenes, etc., from one of the following three countries:
Each entry must tell the story of someone who has experienced diabetes during pregnancy in some capacity. Examples include a woman who has, or has had, diabetes during her pregnancy; health workers who work with women diagnosed with gestational diabetes; spouses of women who have experienced diabetes during pregnancy; or children whose mothers have experienced gestational diabetes. For any questions around submission guidelines, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Photo Contest.
