Out From The Mist: Pointing photography’s compassionate lens at mental health

There are plenty of photography competitions – some provide much-needed exposure for photographers and cash rewards, while others raise awareness on a specific topic like climate change. However, there aren’t many that touch upon the issue of mental health, even though it’s such an important issue today.

Out From The Mist – an international photo and video competition organized by the Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia – aims to change that by putting the focus on mental health and help “break down the stigma associated with it”, according to the competition’s prospectus.

The competition – now in its third year – is currently accepting entries for its 2021 edition, a great way for photographers and video makers to share their experience with mental illness, whether it be a direct impact or an indirect one through friends or family.

Entries can be both stills or short videos of no more than a minute long, and should depict the entrant’s experience of having lived with some form of mental illness. Submissions can represent specific disorders, the recovery process or the indirect relationship of watching a loved one suffer.
