Win a ticket to Real Life Conference

The Documentary Family Awards are proud to announce that we will be sponsoring another two tickets to the Real Life Conference in Portland Oregon this November.

What does this mean?

Anyone who has submitted to the Documentary Family Awards in 2019 is eligible to nominate either yourself or another deserving photographer for a ticket.

Real Life is a yearly photo conference built on the intention of sisterhood.  It is a safe space to learn and grow, with a lineup of inspiring speakers encouraging and empowering female and non-binary photographers to be artists and entrepreneurs. 

The Documentary Family Awards are whole-hearted fans of the magical space created at Real Life Conference.  We love that we get to share this experience with two photographers this year.  To nominate yourself or a friend for a ticket, use the button below:

Nominations due October 10, 2019, 11:59 pm (PDT)
We will be announcing the winners on Friday, October 11, 2019

This sponsorship is for a ticket only – Attendees must be able to provide their own transportation to and from the conference and book their own accommodations. While we would love to provide a full scholarship, gifting the tickets only allows us to send more people to the conference.

“What an incredible group of women you all are. I feel so honoured to have connected with so many of you. Thank you all for being so vulnerable and so real.”

-Jennifer Moher, from the Real Life Website

The Documentary Family Awards is an international competition in search of the insightful and meaningful ways that documentary photographers explore the interpretation of family.
