NewsAll Out Photo Award 2021

All Out is a global movement for love and equality. We are the world’s largest LGBT+ online activism network. We work towards a world in which nobody has to sacrifice their family, freedom, safety or dignity because of who they are or who they love.

On May 17, to mark International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) 2021, All Out (allout.org) and MTV (mtv.com) have launched a major international photography competition.

The competition

Contestants are being asked to submit original photographs in one or more of the three themes of IDAHOBIT 2021: Resisting, Supporting, Healing.

The themes have been selected to reflect the journey of the global LGBT+ community through the COVID-19 pandemic. There has been a disproportionate impact on LGBT+ people during the global health crisis, with discrimination, violence, hunger, homelessness, loss of access to HIV medication and unemployment all rising sharply.

We expect pieces that will provide a moving, sometimes painful, sometimes hopeful insight into how our community has weathered this unprecedented storm. We will announce winners and runners-up on 28 June, Pride Day, and the anniversary of the Christopher Street riots in New York City.

Additional background information

In so many countries around the world, LGBT+ people continue to face a disproportionate impact from COVID-19. Existing marginalization, dependence on the informal economy and

pre-existing health vulnerabilities, particularly HIV, are all combining to leave queer communities horribly exposed. All this comes on top of existing challenges of the discrimination and violence queer communities were already facing. Attacks on LGBT+ people continued as more “LGBT-free zones” were established in Poland, innocent LGBT+ people were arrested and mistreated in countries like Russia, Cameroon, and Tunisia, and many were targeted by hate crimes, and denied access to basic human rights.

Throughout all these difficulties, the LGBT+ community has persisted and resisted. Here at All Out, a global movement for the rights of LGBT+ people, we have witnessed an unprecedented wave of solidarity and support from people all over the world helping those in need.

The All Out Photo Award is a photography competition that is motivated by that solidarity. Inspired by the theme of this year’s International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT), “Together: Resisting, Supporting, Healing!”, the competition calls on photographers to share unique photos that capture how LGBT+ people and their communities and allies around the world resist attacks and discrimination, support each other in these difficult times, and heal together. The All Out Photo Award is being presented by MTV and All Out.

Her work has been featured online with i-D Magazine, WePresent by WeTransfer, Nataal Magazine and Der Greif Magazin.

Charmaine Poh, Photographer, artist, writer

Charmaine Poh works across photography, film, and performance to create spaces for narratives in the margins.
