They provide a platform to sell the students’ photographs and give 100% of the proceeds back to fund the most pressing needs in their communities, enabling them to see the impact of their contribution.

The Chelsea International Photography Competition is proud to give 15% of the exhibition space proceeds from the sale of artwork from the competition exhibition to further the mission of 100cameras.
