Expressing gender identity through photography

This is more than a photo competition. It’s a movement to inspire people to embrace, accept and celebrate gender identity. We are all unique human beings with different experiences, feelings and interpretations of what gender represents.

Throught August and September we called people to capture on camera what gender identity means to them. Thousands of people joined our challenge and became a part of a global conversation that promotes understanding, equality and makes a difference to people’s lives.

Our expert panel of judges chose Claudia Cuomo as the competition winner. She will have her photos exhibited at the International Photography festival in Tel Aviv.
