We are celebrating all self-portraits, showing how each person sees themselves, celebrating each person, just as they are. We exist in all colours, shapes and sizes, gender, identities, sexual preferences and sex characteristics. Yet, we are more alike than different. Let’s celebrate who we all are, in all our glorious differences and in our similarities. We simply are.

We are seeking self-portraits of you. These can come in the form of:
– selfie from phone
– photo of you, taken by someone else
– drawing, painting, sculpture (only 2D formats will be displayed, so you can create a sculpture of yourself, but you will have to photograph it, and enter the photograph)
– writing, poetry, text.

Check our website for more information and to submit your portrait.
