Survival International – the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights – has launched its first-ever worldwide photography competition to mark its 45th anniversary.

The competition aims to celebrate photography as a powerful medium for raising awareness of tribal peoples, their unique ways of life and the threats to their existence.

The competition is open to both amateur and professional photographers; photographs can be submitted in the following themed categories:

- Lands: images that show the intimate relationship between tribal peoples and their lands;

- Human diversity: portraits of individuals, families, relationship between parents and children, elderly, etc;

- Ways of life: for example hunting and gathering, rituals and ceremonies, life at home, nomadism.

The judging panel will include Survival’s Director Stephen Corry, actor and Survival Ambassador Gillian Anderson, the BBC’s Human Planet photographer Tim Allen, The Little Black Gallery’s Founder Ghislain Pascal, Survival’s Photography consultant Joanna Eede, and Survival Italy Coordinator Francesca Casella.

The twelve winning entries will be published in Survival’s 2015 calendar, and be exhibited at The Little Black Gallery in London and in other countries where Survival has offices. The overall winner will receive an Olympus E-PM2 Black Digital Camera with Black 14-42mm lens (courtesy of Olympus).

The closing date for entries is March 31, 2014.
