The Calm Photography Movement Photo Competition

RECENT UK figures show that men are 3 times more likely than women to take their own life, and less likely to talk to anyone about going through a period of depression. The Calm Photography Movement (TCPM) has been founded in partnership with LYNX to spark conversation about masculinity, mental health and self expression through photography.

The movement will raise awareness and funds for the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), an award winning charity dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK.

Amateur and professional photographers are invited to submit images which shine a light on the limitations of traditional masculinity for a chance to be exhibited at the prestigious Getty Images Gallery in Central London, to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week, that will run from:- 10 May to 19 May 2017.

Entries will be judged by an esteemed panel of professionals, including Rankin and Nick Knight, who will be looking for images which express what it is to be a modern man in today's fast changing world.

Photographers wishing to get involved have until Monday, 17 April 2017, to submit their entries, details of which can be seen online.

The winning photographs will be on public display at the Getty Images Gallery, Central London, UK, on 10 May to 19 May 2017, with key photographs used in print and social campaigns as well as being converted into a catalogue, that will be available to be purchase in support of CALM's work preventing male suicide.

TCPM founders Scott Shillum and Steve Wallington said:- "We have founded The Calm Photography Movement to raise awareness of the role that photography can play in shining a light on men's mental health after losing close family and friends to suicide in the recent past. We are thrilled to have the support of Rankin and Nick Knight, along with the generous support of LYNX, Getty Images and TOPMAN."

Simon Gunning, CEO of CALM said:- "Self expression plays an important role in opening up, and photography can be such a powerful tool for this. We're interested in how images can tell stories about our experiences of masculinity, what it means to be a man, and how we can tackle that old stereotype of needing a stiff upper lip. This is central to CALM's mission to create a culture where men face no shame in opening up and seeking help."
