Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights, is delighted to announce the twelve winning entries of its first-ever photographic competition, held to mark the organization’s 45th anniversary. The winning photograph by Giordano Cipriani is a stunning portrait of an Asurini do Tocantins man in the Brazilian Amazon.

The winning entries give an insight into the incredible diversity and unique ways of life of tribal and indigenous peoples around the world. The photographs feature, among others, the long-distance running Tarahumara in Mexico, the bull-jumping Hamer in Ethiopia, and the mountain-dwelling Igorot in the Philippines.
