the washington post
Feb 6, 2020
The Open Call was an exclusive opportunity for photographers who are Visura members to submit visual stories depicting daily life including but not limited to, climate change, 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 - from anywhere in the world. We were particularly interested in the visual stories Visura members were photographing where they live. The 2 winners and 3 honorable mentions have received an invitation to feature the winning project or a new project on The Washington Post In Sight photo blog.
The selection committee was conducted by The Washington Post Editorial Team led by MaryAnne Golon/ Director of Photography with Robert Miller / Deputy Director of Photography, Dee Swann / Senior Photo Editor for Digital Engagement, Kenneth Dickerman / In Sight Photo Editor, & Chloe Coleman/ Foreign and Outlook Photo Editor.
Look for the top selections of the WaPo editors in forthcoming issues of the Washington Post In Sight photo blog.
Past winners: Diana Bagnoli, Emily Schiffer, Brigitte Grignet, Johanna Warwick, Esther Mbabazi, David Arribas, Alejandra Carles-Tolra, and Chantal Heijen; Past Honorable Mentions: Javier Alvarez, Dimitri Mellos, and Gonzalo Pardo

A note from MaryAnne Golon, Director of Photography:
The Washington Post In Sight team was delighted with the high quality, visual variety and wide range of subjects we viewed from Visura members answering our latest Open Call. Many of these visual stories were both inspiring and fresh in their approach. We are particularly excited about the winners delving into the seldom seen worlds of female magicians, Ozarks residents, and even an orangutan rescue. We are very grateful to the Visura community and look forward to future collaborations.
AND THE RESULTS ARE...
THE HONORABLE MENTIONS
Congratulations to them and the honorable mentions and to all in the Visura community who participated.
