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.

Sebastián, junto con su gemela, nació de tan sólo 33 semanas. Su nacimiento prematuro lo obligó a estar 28 días en la Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Neonatales (UCIN).
La prematuridad, el nacimiento de un bebé antes de las 37 semanas de gestación, es la principal causa de muerte entre bebés y niños menores de 5 años. Se calcula que en America Latina al rededor del 9.5% de los bebés son prematuros. La disponibilidad de servicios médicos, terapéuticos y especialistas es fundamental no solo para salvar sus vidas, sino para reducir al mínimo secuelas de largo plazo.

¿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.

#SaludSinPausaCuidadores

A photograph that captures the passion and dedication that caregivers (doctors, nurses, health care providers, family and friends) have shown for their patients. This category is dedicated to those who do a quiet job caring for patients or loved ones and have not put a stop to their admirable work.

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."

#SaludMentalSinPausa

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.

I took this picture of my mother, who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, through the window of a car. She has always enjoyed being outdoors, but lately it has been very difficult to persuade her to leave the house even for a short walk. There seems to be an unsurmountable gap for her between the outside world and the inside one, so safe and familiar. Once I convinced her to leave the car, she was very happy and forgot all about her initial resistance. This contrast between the inside and the outside, must be a struggle for many to overcome, particularly during Covid #SaludMentalSinPausa poy_latam ...

Rastreando mis archivos para un nuevo proyecto con photoclub_es he encontrado esta imagen que tomé en color a principios de los años ochenta en el Instituto Mental de la Santa Creu en Barcelona. Una de las cosas que  me gusta de la Fotografía es que te hace revivir con detalle una experiencia que tuviste y que la habías olvidado tal cómo fue y no cómo la recuerdas, porque el cerebro modela los recuerdos a su conveniencia. Una parte de este reportaje aparece en "Fotografía con una sonrisa". #Ayúdameamirar #Fotografíaconunasonrisa #Lossecretosdelafotografíadeviajes #SaludMentalSinPausa ...
