The Commonwealth Theme for 2016 celebrates the diversity of the Commonwealth, which is made up of more than two billion people. Every one of them is different, and each of them has something unique to offer. The Commonwealth builds a better world by including and respecting everybody, and we hope this year’s Commonwealth Photography Competition will help us celebrate the richness and diversity of all people living in the Commonwealth.
The winning photographs will form part of an exhibition at the Commonwealth Secretariat’s headquarters in London throughout 2016. These photographs will also feature in a new Commonwealth Calendar for 2017 and be published and promoted on the Commonwealth’s website and social media accounts. Each featured finalist will receive a copy of the calendar, in addition to a cash prize.
The decision of the judges is final. No correspondence will be entered into. All winners will be notified by email on/by 4 May 2016.
