This is the twenty-first consecutive year in which Doctors of the World–Médicos del
Mundo (MdM-Spain) has conducted the Luis Valtueña International Humanitarian Photography Competition.

The competition is open to adult amateur and professional photographers of any
nationality. The competition is free to enter.

You may submit a maximum of 10 photographs, which can be distinct or part of a series.

Photographs must be related to any of the following themes: humanitarian action, international cooperation, social exclusion, human rights violations, armed conflicts, natural disasters, refugee and immigrant populations or socially excluded groups.

Only photos taken between January 2016 and October 2017, which have not been previously entered, will be accepted.

The winner will receive a project grant worth 6,000 € to develop a photography project composed of at least 50 photos and a 30 minutes raw video related to the work of Médicos del Mundo, whether in Spain or in other countries where the organisation is implementing a humanitarian action or international cooperation programs.

The winner together with MdM-Spain will define the objectives and the development of the project, taking into account common interests and the operative security conditions related to possible destinations. The amount of the grant should cover all expenses needed to develop the project. Once the project’s terms are settled, MdMSpain will not demand an account of those expenses. The grant will be given in three parts: 50% after the judges’ decision, 25% when the project starts and the remaining 25% when the project concludes.

The photo project will have to be finished before the 15th December 2017.
