Call for submissions

Taking the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a basis, we are calling for global submissions from any women in photography whose work shines a light on a local issue or effort in sustainability.  Your work should explore at least one of the sustainability goals in at least one of the these categories in some way:


No poverty
Zero Hunger
Good health and well-being
Clean water and sanitation


Quality education
Affordable and clean energy
Decent work and economic growth
Industry, innovation and infrastructure
Gender equality
Reduced inequalities
Sustainable cities and communities
Responsible consumption and production
Peace, justice and strong institutions


Climate action
Life below water
Life on land

Successful submissions

Successful submissions will be featured on our website with completed projects forming photo essays, narratives and features.
If you’ve just started a project, there may be opportunities to blog about your work on this space too.
Future opportunities for select work to be part of other projects and gain further exposure will be explored.
