Call for Photos: Outdoors for All

Photo by Kristen Curette & Daemaine Hines

Photos have the power to shape, reinforce, and change our perceptions. Join our global community of professional photographers and help us build a more inclusive world.

Positive representations help us form connections, enhance self-esteem, and send powerful messages about one’s value in society. Noun Project is working to make inclusive, art-quality images available for all through Noun Project Photos – a curated, mission-driven collection of images from photographers around the world.

Noun Project is looking for images that showcase the BIPOC community engaging in outdoor activities and sports. We would love to see images that celebrate diversity and intersectionality including:

  • People in the LGBT+ community
  • Various body types
  • People with tattoos
  • People of various ages, ethnicities, and perspectives
  • People with disabilities
  • Multiethnic groups
