01 Patients: A photograph that captures the experience of patients dealing with diseases other than COVID-19 in this time of pandemic. This category is focused on portraying patients around Latin America who suffer from diseases such as cancer, pulmonary arterial hypertension, multiple myeloma, psoriasis among many others and who have seen the world come to a halt, but their diseases have not. Respect for the dignity of the subject is essential.

Do you have everything?

Can I send photos of other subjects than those described in the categories?

No, these categories are only open to the topics explained in the categories. You can participate in the professional contest if you have other themes.

Can I enter photos of patients with diseases other than those listed in the categories?

Yes, they can go beyond the pathologies listed. We want these categories to highlight what this year has meant for patients other than those infected by COVID-19.

Can I send photos about COVID-19 patients?

No, these special categories seek to highlight what has happened to patients with other diseases and to caregivers who treat these diseases other than COVID-19. The mental health category seeks to show what people have done to maintain their mental health, and in this sense a wide variety of activities and situations from the confinement and the new normal can be shown.

On the other hand, there are many categories in the professional contest that are appropriate for submitting photos of any aspect of the pandemic, or any other topic.

How many photos can I post per category?

Up to a maximum of three individual photos per category.

Can I enter more than one category with different photos?

Yes, I can submit up to 3 different photos per category.

Can I enter more than one category with the same photo?

No, you can only upload the same photo once, in one category.

Can I participate in the amateur and professional categories?

If you are an amateur photographer you can participate in the professional competition, but you will be subject to the same requirements as professional photographers.

Professional photographers must participate exclusively in the competition aimed at professionals.

I am a freelance photographer, and my main source of income is not photography. Can I participate in the amateur competition?

Yes, you can. But remember that there is a greater variety of categories in the professional contest.

Can a photo collage or graphic design compete in this category?

No. We are looking for documentary photographs, that is, images that capture real moments. Posed or constructed photos will only be allowed if they are portraits. And in no case will collages or diptychs be allowed, except in the professional category Nuestra Mirada.

Can I send my photos by e-mail or by any other means?

No, in the amateur section of the competition you can only participate by means of © Instagram. The other sections have other rules.

Can I participate if I don’t have a professional camera?

No. This is a category for amateur or independent photographers. We are looking for quality photos that tell a story. However, the judges will not evaluate the photos according to the device, but by their content. You can use a camera or a cell phone.

Can I reflect people with mental health conditions?

Photos that reflect any illness other than COVID-19 may be entered.

Do I have to have my public Instagram account?

Yes, it has to be a public account.

Can I upload photos to other social networks?

Yes, your photos can be posted on other social networks. However, only photos that are published on Instagram will be entered into the contest.

When can I upload my photos to Instagram?

You can upload your photos from November 30th. Photos posted after January 2, 2021 will not be accepted.

Can I send to the contest a photo that I have already uploaded?

Yes, you can change the description and add “poy_latam” and our hashtag. This will allow this photo to participate in the competition.

Will there be prizes?

Yes, each category will have a winner. The prize per category is $1,000 US dollars.

Don Carlos es diabético y su tratamiento se interrumpió por la cantidad de pacientes con Covid-19 que se encuentran en el seguro social de Puebla. Trabaja en lo que puede para pagar sus medicamentos. Al igual que Carlos, muchos pacientes han interrumpido sus tratamientos médicos por la falta de recursos y espacio en los hospitales del país provocado por la pandemia. poy_latam #SaludSinPausaPacientes ...

¿Qué significa que te quiten una parte de ti? ¿Qué repercusiones físicas y mentales tiene? ¿Cuánto tarda en sanar? Todo esto me lo pregunté cuando inicié este proyecto en plena cuarentena por la pandemia, la protagonista: mi mamá.

Mi mamá es una de las personas más fuertes que conozco. Decidí quitarme los prejuicios para intentar comprender lo que vive y lo que siente, no sólo como madre, sino como mujer, como persona. Sobre todo ahora en esta cuarentena por la pandemia que ella trata de seguir al pie de la letra porque su cuerpo quedó debilitado luego de haber sido sometido a un largo tratamiento contra el cáncer de mama.

En 2019 le extirparon un seno para evitar que el cáncer creciera. El resultado de esa operación fue una cicatriz y hasta el día de hoy no se acostumbra a ver su cuerpo de esa manera. Aunque la parte más dura del tratamiento ha pasado, esté un continúa.

En toda esa época tan complicada que vivimos cuando nos enteramos de su enfermedad, hemos podido aprender mucho; hoy quiero que mi mamá se reconcilie consigo misma.

Segundo a ONU, cerca de um bilhão de pessoas com deficiência vivem em todo mundo. Durante a pandemia pudemos minimamente experimentar uma condição de isolamento social que historicamente as pessoas com deficiência sobreviveram, apartadas e invisibilizaras em nossa sociedade. Quando tudo isso passar que fique uma lição de repensar o preconceito como algo estrutural e valorizar a diversidade como um todo. #pratodosverem : foto colorida, quadrada de Myguel, meu filho de oito anos, tirada em nossa sala de casa durante a pandemia. Ele está com as mãos apoiadas em uma grande janela com os braços elevados e observando o lado de fora. Está de costas para a câmera, entre as cortinas, na penumbra. Do lado de fora, céu azul e um prédio. Myguel nasceu com um quadro neurológico . poy_latam #saludsinpausapacientes ...

Hoy la Sociedad Argentina de Terapia Intensiva (SATI) publicó una carta donde pide desesperadamente la colaboración de la sociedad para respetar las medidas de aislamiento, y denuncia que el personal de salud esta agotado y cerca del colapso.
"Sólo le pedimos a la sociedad que reflexione y que cumpla con tres simples pero efectivas medidas, recomendadas científicamente: Distanciamiento social (permanecer a 1,5 metros), uso de tapabocas (cubriendo nariz y boca), lavado frecuente de manos (con agua y jabón o alcohol en gel), no aglomerarse, no hacer fiestas, ¡No desafiar al virus porque el virus nos está ganando!", podemos leer en la carta.
Y cierra: "Queremos ganarle al virus. Necesitamos que la sociedad toda nos ayude porque no podemos solos. ¡Por favor, ayudanos, quedate en tu casa! Ayudanos a disminuir el ingreso de pacientes. No queremos que vos seas el próximo".

Today the Sociedad Argentina de Terapia Intensiva (SATI) published a letter desperately asking for the collaboration of society to respect the isolation measures, and denouncing that health personnel are exhausted and close to collapse.
"We only ask society to reflect and comply with three simple but effective measures, scientifically recommended: Social distancing (stay at 1.5 meters), use of masks (covering nose and mouth), frequent hand washing (with water and soap or alcohol gel), not crowding, not having parties, not challenging the virus because the virus is winning! ", we can read in the letter.
And he closes: "We want to beat the virus. We need all of society to help us because we cannot alone. Please help us, stay at home! Help us reduce the number of patients. We don't want you to be the next."

“Photography in time of emergency” reports the daily routine in a facility for elderly people, in Lisbon, Portugal in the midst of a state of emergency. Since de elderly have been proved to be the most vulnerable group, for being those who, evidently, have the most severe health conditions of all sorts, the isolation has been imposed to them for a long period of time, as a life preservation method.

The technicians and the remaining workers of the facility make all the efforts in order to keep the physical and psychological wellbeing of the residents, the routines are respected, within the new rules, minimizing negative feelings through possible proximity, constant dialog and availability to listen.

Há cerca de 3 anos, encarando uma das várias dificuldades que minha velhinha há algum tempo começava a demonstrar, percebi que precisava fazer algo para ajudá-la a tomar corretamente seus medicamentos.
.
O tal estojo de orientação diária e por período, vendido em farmácias, definitivamente não funcionou. Testei vários modelos.
.
A solução mais assertiva foi separa-los em envelopinhos, indicando quando tomar.
.
Ainda assim, pouco tempo depois precisei comprar uma agenda para ela ir dando baixa se tomou ou não.
.
Recentemente tive que implementar um fio guia, orientando qual o próximo envelopinho correto.

A picture that captures the importance of mental health in times of pandemic. This category seeks to show strategies that people are using to take care of their mental, physical, and emotional health during the COVID-19 pandemic.

¿Qué es aquello que brilla con intensidad y nos sostiene entre tantas sombras?

La ESPERANZA,
Luminosa, frágil y eterna
Presente, poderosa, anónima ...va uniendo las expectativas silenciosas de miles de personas en un entramado de posibilidades.

La esperanza de superación de esta realidad..
La esperanza de volver a salir al mundo sin miedo a enfermarnos...

La esperanza de continuar viviendo en paz...
La esperanza de que esta instancia también pasará...
Tan simple como eso
La esperanza

Allá por junio, cuando los ataques de pánico diarios no me dejaban vivir, mi salida fue crear y contar con fotos lo que me estaba pasando. (Con)vivir con ansiedad es un ensayo que -aunque nunca aspiró una conclusión- no terminé porque, valga la redundancia, me daba ansiedad. Acá un autorretrato de cuando mi sombra me absorbió.

Being across an ocean from my family during Christmas was hard, but video calling into celebrations and surrounded by gorgeous landscape helped a lot.

It’s the little things, like a few minutes to not feel so far away, that make the biggest difference.
