Viva!'s 20th Anniversary Photo Competition

Viva!'s 20th Anniversary Photo Competition!

Aspiring Photographers we need you!

So much of Viva!’s work over the past 20 years has involved portraying farmed animals in pictures. How else would people realise the state of these poor creatures in and the dire factory farm conditions in which they have to live – and which we campaign to close.

From the posture, the cuts and abrasions but particularly eyes, we often get a vivid insight into an individual animal’s personality.

And that is what we are looking for – an insight into the animals themselves. So  why not be a part of our crucial work by entering this competition to celebrate the animals we are fighting for?

We are looking for high quality photos of farmed animals – no matter what the setting. It could be images taken at home, a sanctuary, outdoor or intensive indoor farm – anywhere. They can be sad or uplifting, amusing or enraging but it is the animal we want to see.

You can email us as many photos as you like, colour or black and white.  (Please try to send at least A4 portrait size at 300dpi, or at least 2480px wide by 3500px high - we will look at any photos though so still send them in if you are not sure about its resolution. Kids - if you use a phone camera, email it at the highest resolution.)


The competition is divided into three age categories: under 11s; 11-17’s and 18 and overs.


We are delighted to have wildlife photographer Christopher Rimmer, see some of his stunning photos here Along with Tony Wardle, editor of Viva!life, Juliet Gellatley, founder of Viva! and Justin Kerswell, deputy director of Viva!.
