Submit a photo story to honour our healers during this pandemic!

The Other Hundred Healers is a global non-profit photojournalism project that celebrates the men, women and children who are healing their communities during this global pandemic through selfless acts of work, caring, kindness and compassion.

Through a series of 100 photo-stories from 100 countries spanning all corners of the world, the project aims to challenge stereotypes and conventional wisdom by introducing readers to people, places, cultures and ideas that are overlooked by most major media.

We have received entries from all around the world but are now urgently seeking entries from Japan. We hope you and your friends will be interested in our project and submit your photo stories of the unsung heroes in your community. These include the delivery workers, volunteers, teachers, essential workers, community leaders, and healthcare and emergency workers, just to name a few. Top 100 entries will be rewarded with cash prizes!
