One Life is open to photographers 18 and older from anywhere in the world! We are looking for all types of digital and film photography, including: people, places, things and ideas. We are looking for compelling images that tell stories as you envision them.

Entrants must be 18 or older. We accept work from artists who have had public shows and also from those who are yet to be discovered. We aren't interested in your work history; we are only interested in the quality of work you are producing now.

Contest consists of two (2) rounds of evaluation. In Round One, a panel of PDN experts in photography (the "Judges") will each review a portion of the entries and select a group of entries in each Category to proceed to Round Two. In Round Two, the Judges will collectively select, from among the entries selected in Round One, a winner in each Category. Limit one prize per winner.

  • Early Entry Winner - US$2,000
