Carers Wales Photography Competition

Photography competition A1V2

Carers Wales is inviting you to reveal the hidden lives of unpaid carers through photographs that show what life is really like for carers.

97% of all caring is provided by unpaid carers. Lives that are often hidden from society and not known, seen or asked about. We want to reveal the struggles and triumphs that carers go through each and every day.


The theme of the photography competition is:

‘Revealing the hidden lives of carers: You never knew, you never saw, you never asked’ 

The theme is open to individual interpretation. We are looking for you to take images of what it means to be an unpaid carer. This can be anything from an image of someone performing their caring role or something that resonates with your caring role, to an abstract image that means something to you as a carer. Let your imagination run wild!

The competition is split into two categories: one for unpaid carers and previous unpaid carers and one for non-carers. Photographs placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd will receive a prize of £100, £50 and £25 respectively for both categories. There will also be a highly commended section for the best images that did not make the top 3.

Each entry should include the entrant’s name, contact details, narrative about yourself up to 500 words, which category you are entering, photograph name/title, and a narrative about each photo up to 500 words.

Competition closes at midday on 27th May, and winners will be announced during Carers Weekbetween the 8th and 14th June. Please read the competition Terms and Conditions page before entering.

The competition winners will be invited to an exhibition that showcases the winning photographs alongside decision makers in Welsh Government, local councils and the Welsh NHS. This event will give attendees the opportunity to talk about the experiences of being an unpaid carer and how unpaid carers can be better supported to continue their invaluable role in society.

The event date is not being specified at this time due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the unknown length of restrictions. Competition winners will be informed as soon as circumstances allow.

The photographs will be used by Carers Wales to help campaign for carers rights, provide information and advice and help to make lives better for carers.
