A single word category that hardly gives justice to the complexity and depth of this subject matter. Photographs should be of the birth process at some point and do not have to be just of the final moments of a child being born. Share your photos with us of any moment leading up to, during and after the birthing process.

As you know, we love documentary family photography and can’t wait to give your birth work international recognition! >> Join Now

***Note: The Birth category is uncensored. Share your best work with us and we will share the award-winning photos on the appropriate channels. A reminder that photographers entering this (and any) category must have the permission of any recognizable subjects to use their photos publicly.
