Dear photographers, 

The Local Testimony website is open for uploading photographs submissions for this year’s competition.

Successful photos will be shown in the Local Testimony 2019 exhibition, alongside the World Press Photo exhibition.


The deadline for uploading photos to the website is midnight on August 31, 2019.


Video Works:


Creators of video works should register for the competition by August 31, 2019. The submission deadline is September 15, 2019.


Works should be uploaded via sites for transferring large files or by emailing a link to


Works should be no longer than 10 minutes and the file size should not exceed 200MB.


Please make sure to use your name in Latin characters as the filename.



Although photographs may be uploaded at any time during the competition period, we appreciate early submissions. Waiting until the last minute overloads the system and causes delays in processing the files.

Note that you can make modifications to your portfolio up to the end of the competition period, midnight on August 31, 2019.


For more information see the Instruction Guide on the website.


We will be happy to assist you with any issues.


Best of luck,

Local Testimony 2019 editorial board
