Rest of World Photography Contest 2023 ($1,000 cash prize)


Deadline: January 31, 2023

Applications are invited for the Rest of World Photography Contest 2023. Drones flying vaccines to remote communities in Nepal. App-based delivery drivers navigating traffic in Bangkok. Nickel mining in the jungles of Indonesia. Technology is all around us, changing the way we live and engage with others.

This year, Rest of World wants to see how you are experiencing these profound changes, and how tech impacts you and your communities — from how you work to how you shop to how you eat. For the inaugural Rest of World Photography Contest, they want to see your images of technology’s impact.


  • The first-place winner will be awarded a $1,000 cash prize.
  • The second- and third-place winners will be awarded $500 and $250, respectively.


  • Open to photographers of any skill level, living and working in the non-Western world.
  • Each photographer may enter a single image made within the last three years. 


Photographers may submit one image to the contest. Images should be no less than 2,500 pixels on their longest side and in JPG format. They should be emailed to [email protected] with “Photography Contest” in the subject line.

The email must include the photographer’s full name and location, as well as a one- or two-sentence description of the image. Any submission that does not follow these guidelines will be disqualified.
