Out from the Mist

Representations of Mental Illness

Out from the Mist is a photography, short movie and music competition. The competition is about mental illness but is also about so much more. 

Mental illness encompasses a range of disorders, some transient, others chronic, and each is a personal story of a lived experience. Images, short films or music can be based on a wide range of emotions, reactions, responses, and representations, reflecting the diversity of people’s experience. Each story is personal and so is the journey.

Many people recover fully or partially from a mental health condition and go on to live fulfilling and meaningful lives. Images, short movies or music celebrating recovery, wellness and contributing back into the community can provide hope for those still finding their way.
