Have you ever thought that a picture of one of your projects could be worth $500?
The Development Gateway Foundation is launching a photo contest open to everyone over 18 yrs old. They are looking for compelling photographs of socio-economic development in developing countries.
Four types of photographs will be accepted:
- The images may show information and communications technologies helping ordinary people.
- The images may show people making something, selling wares, working in a field, constructing a building or type of infrastructure, or acquiring knowledge.
- The images could be abstract images representing hope, the future, or capacity building.
- The photographs may also include images of original artwork from a developing country. Please do not include photographs of groups of people posing.
Each online entry must include a description explaining how that image is representative of development. Images will be judged on technical excellence, composition, overall impact, and artistic merit. Each entrant may enter up to three photographs. Acceptable photo formats are TIFF, JPEG, GIF or BMP. Photo size must be no larger than 3 mb.
The deadline to submit your photographs is September 21, 2007. The top ten photographs will be posted on the Development Gateway Foundation Web site from October 1-8. The winner of the $500 prize will be announced on October 9. All visitors to the site will be eligible to vote.
