How does a family look?

There are as many answers as there are modern families. While families have always been diverse, the increasing acceptance of that diversity has allowed more people to be seen and heard.

With this creative brief, we welcome imagery that openly and accurately depicts the modern family in all of its multifaceted splendor. These images gather and celebrate families of every background: parents, children, and every person and relative—biological or not—contributing to the love and care of a household.

More than two

Family groups beyond nuclear: multigenerational households where grandpa, auntie, cousins and siblings all share space; polyamorous triads, quads or more; extended co-living collectives of friends.

Welcoming new family life

More ways of caring for family are being increasingly accepted. Family might mean heterosexual union and traditional pregnancy, adoption, IVF or surrogacy. Caregivers come in many forms, including single parents by choice, grandparents, or extended family members rearing children and providing care. These images explore the beautiful and bumpy road to parenthood from every angle.
