Urgent Edition: Disintegrating Democracy

The Allard Prize for International Integrity invites photographers to submit entries for this urgent edition of the Allard Photography Competition. Photographs should depict the disintegration of democracy or rise of authoritarianism and totalitarianism across the world, highlighting in the photograph’s description any links to corruption and human rights abuse. We especially welcome entries depicting attacks on the free press, assaults on democratic freedoms, anti-democratic responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, and erosion of the rule of law.

Winners will receive $1,000 CAD and be featured on the Allard Prize website. The full terms and conditions can be reviewed here. The submission deadline is February 1, 2022 at 11:59pm PST.
