Wellcome Photography Prize celebrates compelling imagery that captures stories of health, medicine and science.

Wellcome Photography Prize competition will reward pictures that show the importance of health in society and the impact health issues have on people and communities worldwide. They are looking for entries that can captivate people with stories of science and medicine, and start conversations about some of the health challenges humanity faces today.

Whether you are a research scientist, a documentary or clinical photographer, an artist, or a photojournalist, this is a great opportunity for you to inspire people to think differently about health, medicine and life.

There are four categories in the competition:

Social perspectives – explore how health and illness affect the way we live
Hidden worlds – reveal details hidden to the naked eye
Medicine in focus – show health and healthcare up close and personal
Theme of the Year  – a different topic each year
