Offer: Potraying Gender: A Photo Competition

Deadline: May 1, 2009

The WACC Photographic Competition 2009 has been launched. The competition, in its sixth year, is being run on Flickr for the fourth time!

This year’s theme 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’.

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, above, 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.

La WACC a lancé son concours photographique 2009. Ce concours, dans sa sixième édition, se trouve sur Flickr !

Le thème est « représenter le genre ». On invite les photographes à soumettre des photos qui dépeignent les femmes ou les hommes de façon à ce qu’on perçoive leurs rôles et responsabilités à travers un objectif nouveau. De telles photos défient et aident à rompre les perceptions conventionnelles de la « féminité » et de la « masculinité ».

Les participants doivent télécharger leurs photos sur le site de Flickr.

Les gagnants du concours recevront une somme d’argent comme prix. Il y aura un premier prix et les cinq suivants recevront également des prix. Le premier prix est de USD 500 et les cinq suivants sont de USD 200.

La date limite est le premier mai 2009. La WACC annoncera les gagnants du concours avant la fin du mois de mai. De plus amples renseignements sur le concours se trouvent ici http://www.flickr.com/groups/wacc2008/
