WACC annual photographic competition launched

 The WACC Photographic Competition 2009 has been launched. The competition is being run on Flickr.


This year’s theme of the competition is portraying gender”.  Photographers are invited to submit photos that portray women or men in ways that offer new perceptions about their roles and responsibilities. Such photos challenge conventional understandings of ‘femininity’ and ‘masculinity’ and help break the mould of the male-female ‘divide’.


Photos must be must be loaded on flickr.


Winners of the competition will be awarded cash prizes. There will be one first prize and five commendations. The first prize is $500 and each commendation will be awarded $200.


The closing date is 1 May 2009. The competition winners will be announced later in May. Read more about the competition.


This popular event brings together hundreds of photographers from around the world with each photo on the subject of communication. Last year’s theme was Women’s communication rights. The winning photo was submitted by Leslie Knott. It presents a journalist in Maimana, Afghanistan conducting an interview for her program on agriculture on Radio Quyaash, an independent women-managed radio station.
