What does change look like? For the last little while, I have dreamt of the difference we could make if we could just capture the hearts of the public.
I felt passionate about a vision of change for poor people in developing countries and to that, I came up with the idea of Picture The Difference – a photography competition which could harness creativity to create a positive change for the world.
The competition has just launched so if you’d like to be in with a chance to get your work exhibited in a London gallery and take a trip of a lifetime visiting an ActionAid project, enter the competition now. Here is a screenshot of our entries so far.
A few important details:
- Each entry costs £10, half goes to ActionAid to support the amazing work they do.
- For this fee you can enter up to 3 photos into the contest.
- Photos must be uploaded via the Picture The Difference website.
- The competition ends on 31 January 2012.
We have some great judges on board – Alf Kumalo, Antonio Gamito, Dan Kennedy, John Angerson, Justin Lane, Laurence Watts and Sophie Batterbury – all experts in the field of photography.
Through this photo competition, we want to give individuals the encouragement and the opportunity to share their view of the world through pictures. Hopefully we can use our creative methods to generate fresh donations from those that can afford and help those that really need it.
And we mean really need it, people that can't afford to feed themselves or their families on a day to day basis, whole communities of people that can't afford education, who live each day with the tragic knowledge that their offspring may never have an opportunity to fulfil their potential.
We dream of change, and to that extent we ask for your visions of change. Upload your pictures that best represent change to you now.
