Resist 2019 Photo Contest!

Calling all Movement Photographers!

A picture is worth a thousand words, and here at Resist, we want to see what you’re saying!

Photographers are an integral part of the movement for justice and liberation, you make the movement irresistible and uplift marginalized communities through visually compelling photos. Resist is looking for photographers who want to tell the story of the resistance through their lens by highlighting communities who:  

  • Resist: organize, base build, engage in direct action and cultural organizing.

  • Re-imagine: actively build new systems that provide alternatives to the ones we’re fighting now.

  • Build Resilience: create through arts, cultural, and/or healing work and all forms of creative resilience building.

Photographs can include (but are not limited to) frontline folks in protest, organizing a rally, doing arts/creative work with their communities, partaking in healing rituals, being in community with one another – the possibilities are endless.
