> Stumbled upon this photo contest “Picture This: Caring for the Earth”.
The rules are as follows :
Photos submitted for the contest should also document people in Africa working to mitigate or prevent the effects of climate change or environmental degradation in general. They should be taken from a journalistic sensibility and tell a human story. They could profile a breaking news story, or an on-going project; they could also profile a particular African and her or his work, or a community and its work.
There are two categories: individual photos (up to 5 entries per person) and photo essay (one photo essay, 4-10 photos per essay, per person). You may only enter one category.
You must enter as either a professional or an amateur.
You musthave lived in a country of Africa for 12 months between August 2007 and August 2009.
There is still 6 weeks to go and I think I will enter. It would be really great to own a professional camera, but even greater having Wangari Maathai glance at something I saw through my viewfinder.
In the pic: The supposedly number one prize.
