1000 Kalema--A Picture and A Thousand Words Competition

Event Date: 
February 7, 2011 (All day) - April 24, 2011 (All day)

"They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a thousand words creates the story." P.K. McCary

Think Peace Media and Communications Network (United States) and NaYA CC (Jordan) have teamed together as part of United Religions Initiative to bring to individuals and groups, a photographic/essay competition called "1000 Kalema" (www.1000kalema.org)--Kalema translated to "words" in Arabic. The theme behind this competition is interfaith cooperation: offering groups and individuals an opportunity to share a story of communities organizing an event, the sharing of religious traditions and rituals, women and children activities across religious and cultural borders, and intergenerational relationships (capturing the wisdom of the elders). The mission is to gather the imaginative photography and essays that tell the story of hope and harmony.

There are three cash prizes. First prize winner will be the cover of a book of the interfaith journey. For more information, go to the website for rules and guidelines. Submissions of photographs and essays (150 words maximum) should be sent to submissions@1000kalema.org.
