#commitmentceremony Photo and Video Competition
Friends, Family and Love!

Many people decide to get married or enter into civil partnerships every year. Others reconfirm their vows after years of being together.

It is clear that people wish to declare their commitment to one another and the way that they do it, is not standardized. If stock is to be believed, commitment comes in the form of long haired young female in a white dress alongside a usually dark haired male dressed in a suit.

This narrow view does not allow for the diverse range of ceremonies that couples organize, nor for the diversity of the couples themselves.

Please show us your images and/or video of ceremonies that connect people together. Think as diverse from the usual as you possibly can – both in casting and location.

Diversity is not just ethnicity, also consider sexual orientation, culture/religious and older age.

Images captured by smart phones are very much welcomed!

The Prizes:

The First Prize for 1 person (Photo or Video):
