Back for its fifth year, 1854 Media and the British Journal of Photography invites you to enter Portrait of Humanity. This global contest asks photographers to submit photos “capturing the moments that make us what we are” to be in with the chance of having their work seen internationally. 

Since its inception, Portrait of Humanity, the importance and depiction of our shared sense of humanity is what drives the award. The award presents an opportunity to capture the moments that remind us what it is to be human amidst times of uncertainty, conflict and strife.
