The Washington Post is delighted to announce the winners and honorable mentions of its 2018 Open Call for photographers. Determined to expand the parameters of visual storytelling, the Washington Post hosted this open call using the Visura platform to connect with professional photographers worldwide.

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, environment, gun control, the human condition, politics, and culture - from anywhere in the world. We were particularly interested in the visual stories Visura members were photographing where they live. 

Past winners: Diana Bagnoli, Emily Schiffer,  and Brigitte Grignet


A note from MaryAnne Golon, Director of Photography:


The Washington Post photo team was impressed with the high quality, visual variety and depth of the photo entries from Visura members to our Open Call.  Many of these visual stories were inspirational and creative covering issues like climate change, environmental impact, gun control, politics, and international cultures.  We were particularly excited to see the fresh approach the winners took in crafting their visual stories.  


Congratulations to them and the honorable mentions and to all in the Visura community who participated.

The selection committee was led by The Washington Post Editorial Team led by MaryAnne Golon/ Director of Photography with Dee Swann/ Senior Photo Editor for Digital Engagement and Kenneth Dickerman/ In Sight Photo Editor, & Chloe Coleman/ Foreign and Outlook Photo Editor at The Washington Post. 

The winners and honorable mentions have received an invitation to feature the winning project or a new project on The Washington Post In Sight photo blog. Look for the top selections of the WaPo editors in forthcoming issues of the Washington Post In Sight photo blog.
