A “Wellcome” Sight
A fresh take on an existing photography competition aims to display the diversity of science
Joanna Cummings |
The Wellcome photography prize has a new look for 2019. Previously known as the Wellcome Image Awards, the annual photography competition from the UK’s research charity the Wellcome Trust rewards pictures from any country that showcase stories of health, science and medicine. With categories including “hidden worlds”, “medicine in focus”, “social perspectives” and a special theme for 2019, “outbreaks”, the new prize hopes to expand the scope of the competition beyond the traditional clinical and imaging focus. Marianne Dear, Wellcome Photography Prize Manager says, “We wanted to reveal more about health in a broader way, rather than only focusing on researchers in laboratories. The new prize expands this vision to the health challenges we face not only in our own bodies but in families, communities and broader society.”
