Thompson Reuters Foundation Photo Competition on Covid-19 2020

Thompson Reuters Foundation offers a photo competition for visual storytellers to capture the untold consequences of COVID-19 on people’s lives and livelihoods, in 2020

Could your picture tell a thousand words? Then the camera is in your hands. The photo competition is open to anyone with a passion for turning the lens on the real lives behind the headlines, and an ability to capture the most powerful images of the pandemic’s impact on everyday people.

COVID-19: The Bigger Picture uses the power of photography and journalism to bring to the world’s attention stories of how most vulnerable to the pandemic are being impacted – stories that are often untold or overlooked.
