Every year the Festival of Ethical Photography opens a “Call for Entry” dedicated to NGOs, humanitarian organisations and voluntary associations, with the goal to select photographic works to be exhibited in a themed area called NGOs Area”.

Since its first year, the Festival of Ethical Photography has always given particular attention to the use of photography by those organisations that deal with social issues.
The main objective is getting the audience closer to ethical content by using photography as a communication and learning tool.
The NGOs Area is a special section of the Festival reserved for the presentation of photographic works commissioned to photographers by non-profit organisations.

Given the importance that the NGOs area covers in our event, and the last minute news that new exhibit venues are going to be available, the Festival staff have decided to extend the deadline of the Call for Entry in order to reach the highest number of associations and give them a chance to participate.

How to participate

  • Participation is open to all NGOs, humanitarian organisations and voluntary associations (hereafter as NGOs) that use the language of photography as a tool to communicate, investigate, and reflect. As submission is only for NGOs, only work presented by the NGO itself as the commissioner will be considered.
  • It is not necessary for the work to be unpublished.
  • More than one submission is permitted.

The reportage must be sent using the form available in this page, through the link available at the bottom.
The form must be filled in with all the required information.

All the files of a project must be sent in a unique compressed archive in .zip, .rar or .7z format with a maximum size of 25MB.
The archive’s file must be the title of the project. Heavier archives or archives in a different format than the ones allowed will not be uploaded by the system.
