Boris Dittrich“I often meet people who base their opinion about LGBT people on myths and stereotypes. The only way to counter these myths and stereotypes is by showing people what reality looks like. Visibility of the LGBT community is an essential first step to counter these myths and stereotypes. Pride Photo Award is a welcome addition to that visibility.”
Boris Dittrich, member of the Support Committee.

Friends of Pride Photo Award

Community support is essential for the development of all activities of Pride Photo Award. We are supported by a large number of committed volunteers who selflessly donate their time to make sure the contest and exhibition can take place every year. We depend on donations and sponsors to make sure these efforts will not be in vain. The more people support us, the more likely it is that sponsors and funds will support us as well.
Your contribution helps us realize the annual contest and exhibition, both in The Netherlands and abroad. You can help us reach a large audience with high quality photos about sexual and gender diversity. For the first time this year we will also give out a ‘Friends Award’ to the winner of the theme category.

Mark Emdin Head Shot medium“The Pride Photo Award exhibition held at Shell’s global headquarters coincided with Shell hosting the 8th Workplace Pride International conference on LGBT issues in the workplace. The collection of photos wonderfully portrayed both the normality and challenges of being LGBT around the world. The reactions were overwhelmingly positive. Having the photos on display in our global headquarters not only raised the visibility of the topic but was also highly appreciated by our LGBT employees as a sign of ongoing support.”
Mark Emdin, Senior Organisation Effectiveness Consultant at the Royal Dutch Shell
Pride Photo Award offers organizations a special opportunity to host an exhibition featuring a selection of the winning images from the latest edition. Displaying these images offers an excellent talking point for employees and visitors to your workplace. Hosting the exhibition is a unique and beautiful way of highlighting your company’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
By becoming a supporter of the award through a Pride Photo Award In Business membership, you will be one of twelve companies who each hold a one month exclusive exhibition at a location of their choice, such as their Dutch headquarters. The images will be handpicked by members of the Pride Photo Award team, keeping in mind the suitability of showing these images in a workplace environment.
In addition, your company will be visible at the exhibition and in all Pride Photo Award communication efforts.
Members of the Pride Photo Award In Business network and companies who have hosted the exhibition include lawyer firm Van Doorne, Akzo Nobel, Clifford Chance, the Dutch Central Bank and Shell.
