Offer: Photo Contest focusing on Women's Entrepreneurship - Empowerment through Innovation
The Legatum Center for Development and Entrepreneurship at MIT invites amateur and professional photographers from around the world to enter our 2nd Annual Photo Contest. The Legatum Center was founded on the belief that economic progress and good governance in low-income countries emerge from entrepreneurship and innovations that empower ordinary citizens. In contrast with images that show only the most devastating aspects of life in low-income countries, we look for photos that capture stories of entrepreneurial activity and demonstrate innovation and empowerment. We believe that entrepreneurship, coupled with the use of transformative technologies such as mobile phones and computers, has the power to create real progress from the bottom up. By sharing your photos, you can help us present a new vision for development – one that is more dignified, one that is more optimistic, and one that inspires action.
The theme of the 2nd Annual Photo Contest is:
"Women's Entrepreneurship: Empowerment through Innovation"
We are looking for photographs that:
1.) depict women in low-income countries engaging in entrepreneurial activities, and
2.) showcase transformative technologies such as mobile phones, mobile devices, e-commerce, solar technologies, and other innovative uses of technology.
