Open Call

The 2019 Washington Post Open Call for Photographers

Please submit your visual stories that chronicle daily life anywhere in the world.  We are particularly interested in themes such as:  how climate change has affected the way we live, back-to-the-land movements or families/communities living “off the grid,” revelatory depictions of the human condition, and celebrations of local traditions or cultures.  We welcome additional submissions beyond these suggestions including Visura members photographing in their own communities.
Accepting submissions: October 28 to December 2, 2019
